Pastors' Class: A Closer Look At What We Believe

On Wednesdays from April 29-June 3, 2015, we hosted “Pastors' Classes" at both campuses, where attendees heard one of our pastors teach on a specific issue, and then were able to dialogue, engage, and ask questions.

These classes addressed various topics and sections of our statement of faith. Below, you will find class videos and notes for you to view if you missed the classes, or want a refresher.
