Connect Class Online

This class is designed to introduce you to our church in a broad and general fashion. It will also answer some common questions about what it means to be a believer in Jesus, to be a part of a Presbyterian Church (Presbyterian Church in America) in the Reformed Tradition, and to be a member of this church in particular. You will learn about our central beliefs, our philosophy of ministry, and our organization. We will also explore how you can best take advantage of, and become involved in, the multitude of opportunities that come with being a part of our community.

Most likely, the Connect Class videos will not answer every one of your questions. Feel free to ask questions or direct remaining questions to any of the ministry staff or leadership. God has brought you here for a purpose; we want to help you discover and fulfill that purpose.

After you have gone through the material, please email to set up a time to review in person or keep an eye out for one of our Coffee Connect gatherings.

You can purchase a hard copy of the Connect Guide  for $10.
