BIBLE STUDY CLASS
Location: Room 207
We are a small, friendly, multi-generational group that enjoys reading and discussing Christian literature together, such as books by James Moore and J. Ellsworth Kalas.

BURLEIGH LAW CLASS
Location: Room 200
The Burleigh Law class is a large group and many of its members, both married and single, are retired. Our name is in memory of a missionary who gave his life in the Congo. Classes are taught by both members and guests, and lessons may be taken from church publications or issues of local interest. We are known for our social get-togethers and fellowship times (and trips), usually monthly. We support the nursery class made up of two and three year olds.
