Adult Classes.jpg

Summer Block 2018 (June-July)

Classes are a way for you to take ownership of your own personal growth by learning practical tools and receiving relevant information to thrive in your everyday lives. Most of our classes are offered during each service hour (9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.) so that you can experience both a class and a worship service on Sundays. Some classes are offered as Saturday intensive and on Wednesday evenings.
If you have any questions, please contact Eric Chang (

Wednesday Group Opportunities at 7:00 p.m.

 Corporate Prayer
Various Leaders
4th Floor - Room 401/403

Corporate Prayer is an important part of the life of the church, along with worship, sound doctrine, communion, and fellowship.  The early church met regularly to learn the doctrine of the apostles, break bread, and pray together.  When we pray together with other Christians, the effects can be extremely positive.  Corporate prayer edifies and unifies the body as we share our common faith.

Men's Group
Pastor Jim Raleigh
4th Floor - Reception Office

Men's Group is about building friendships and growing as a Christ-follower.  We take time each week to tell stories, share battle scars, and get to know each other better.  A short devotion is given to encourage men of all ages.



Women's Group
Various Leaders
4th Floor - Residency Office

Women's Group provides a place of community for women of all ages to care and share, to challenge and support, to laugh and to encourage one another.  We want to grow spiritually and be transformed.  We alternate between Bible studies and discussion topics.


Other Opportunities

 International Bible Study
Various Leaders
4th Floor - Room 404

Friday, 7:00 p.m.

International Bible Study

The International Bible Study meets on Friday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Peoples Church building, room 404. This group is for internationals, both students and recent graduates who have begun their careers. Every week individuals from all different backgrounds come together to experience life in the Body of Christ and gain a deeper understanding of the Bible in order to be obedient disciples of Jesus Christ. Come join us!








Christian discipleship is the process by which we grow in our knowledge and understanding of Jesus and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of life, becoming more like Jesus.

Often, this process requires a one-on-one discipleship relationship.  We have individuals ready to partner and walk with you on your journey with Christ.  To learn more about starting the discipleship process or about becoming a discipleship partner, contact Petros Yefru at
