All-Zell Class - Meets in Room 320. This class is guided by a quarterly study series called The Present Word. The quarters are scripture-based, and focus on a topic, like “God Frees and Redeems”, for example. The style is lecture, with minimal class participation. The unique name is a blend of two formerly separate classes: The ALLman Class, and the MiZELL class. This class is mostly comprised of individuals who have been friends for decades.
Home Room Class - Room 318. HomeRoom’s diverse membership is united by love and mutual respect. Our relaxed discussions on scripture and current topics are structured, yet the Holy Spirit always coaxes surprising and amazing insights out of us. This is not to be missed, so grab a coffee and come experience this yourself! Contact Debbie Eichner for more info. The Home Room Class will not be meeting during the summer and will return on Sunday, September 11.
Kairos - Room 322. Nell and Jim Carvell are the primary leaders. They tend to pick short-term curriculum that is liturgically/seasonally appropriate. This class is comprised of both people who have both been at the church for a long time, and newer members. The Kairos class will not be meeting during the summer and will return on Sunday, September 11.
Logos - Room 324. This class encourages lots of class participation. The teachers, topics, and ages are varied.
Open Ring - Blakley Hall. This class is sometimes called “the Foster class” because it was led – for decades – by a beloved church member named Dan Foster. They also vary their teachers and topics, but tend to be scripture-oriented and lecture based.
Thomas-Forum - Room 321. Taught by Don Heinen and guided by The Present Word. Don prepares the lesson but fully expects lots of questions and discussion from the group. It tends to be scripture-heavy, but the conversation loops around. It skews toward long-timers and empty-nesters.
Twenty-First Century Disciples - Koinonia Room. The teachers and topics vary; the first Sunday of each month though, they are doing a deep-dive into Isabel Wilkerson’s book Caste. Topics tend to lean toward current affairs and short-term studies. This is a big group with a variety of ages.
