Sunday Christian Education

Providence’s adult Christian Education classes are designed to provide a context where adults may engage in meaningful, challenging, and exciting education programs that prepare and strengthen them to live as faithful people in God’s world.

As a congregation, Providence seeks to embody a generous, welcoming spirit in all aspects of church life, including our Christian Education classes. We hope that you will join us!

We offer a variety of on-going classes that meet each week as well as short-term studies throughout the year.
