Adults ministry

We have Sunday School Classes, evening Bible Studies, Community Volunteer Teams, and Groups to get you rooted and flourishing.
The adult library is located in the Parlor. Come in and browse for a variety of reading material.

Inquirers’ Class

Interested in church membership?  The New Member Classes are held periodically immediately after worship in the Conference Room.  Childcare is provided for all of the classes.  Please speak with one of the pastors or call the office (697-0351) for more information.

Pastor’s Bible Study

Thursdays, 12 – 1 PM during the program year
Conference Room 

Join Pastor Kathryn for lunch (BYO) and some B.S. (short for Bible Study, of course).  We will spend the hour discussing the sermon from the previous Sunday and the Scripture for the next Sunday.  Check the bulletin for any changes in the schedule.

Sunday School Classes

During COVID-19 shutdown of the Church, classes are meeting via Zoom.  For more information on these classes or Zoom links, contact Cathay Snyder, Christian Education Director, or 717-671-0351.

Sunday School classes normally meet from 9:35 – 10:35 Sunday mornings

Joyful Hearts

The class is currently meeting via Zoom at 9 to 9:45AM Sunday mornings.

Joyful Hearts meets in the Parlor and is facilitated by Joyce Lackey. Members of Joyful Hearts are adult women who participate in intimate Bible study through open discussions, fellowship, and praying for, and with, one another. The class is studying the book of Esther.  

Dave Petko Class

The class is currently meeting via Zoom at 8:45 to 9:45AM Sunday mornings.

Dave Petko Class meets in the Conference room and is facilitated by various members of the class. Named in memory of long-time class member and facilitator, this class involves concentrating and studying a book in the Bible and includes class discussions and insights on culture, geography, social aspects and historical data using various bible translations and reference guides. Come to just listen or to share your thoughts as we journey through the books of the Bible. Join us as we continue a comparison study of the Gospel of John, with the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. 

The Thoughtful Christian

The class meets via Zoom at 11:15AM Sunday mornings.

The Thoughtful Christian meets in the Upper Fellowship hall and is facilitated by church staff or guest speakers.  A wide range of topics, e.g., current events and issues are explored through short-term studies, book discussions, as we seek to challenge ourselves in our faith.  The various programs offered are listed in the Sunday Bulletin and the Cornerstone (church newsletter). The current study is Race and the Church.  This is an opportunity to learn and be in conversation about the church’s role in racism and anti-racism.
