Adult Ministries

Friedens' adult ministries are designed to help people follow Jesus together, experience the life change that Jesus offers,

and invest in others' spiritual growth.

Sunday-Morning Classes

Sundays from 9:30-10:15am

From September-May, there are Sunday-morning classes for adults at 9:30am.  Nursery, along with classes for children and teens, are also available during this timeslot.  

The cycle of adult classes revolves around the UP-IN-OUT Triangle.  There are three classes at a time in six-week intervals, and new classes are regularly introduced.  The diagram to the left shows some of the classes that have recently been offered.  

The current set of classes (April 7-May 20) focuses on our IN relationships with other Christians.  The classes are:

Raising Kingdom Kids
This DVD Curriculum by Tony Evans will challenge and equip parents to fully understand their position under God, helping them fulfill their role in parenting the children God has given them. (Led by Greg Masslich in the classroom across from the nursery.)

Jesus spent less than 40 years on earth and only three were spent with the 12 disciples. Just before returning to heaven, Jesus gave a mission to his disciples: "go and make disciples of all nations." Jesus could have chosen to stay on earth and done all the disciplemaking himself, but God has always involved His people in doing His work! We are God's "Plan A" for making disciples of Jesus in the world, and we cannot take this mission for granted! (Led by Charissa Toeller in the library.)

Anger: Handling a Powerful Emotion in a Healthy Way
Life is full of frustrations - some big, some little. It's easy to grow bitter and angry in the wake of disappointments, hurt, rejection, and embarrassment. This class digs into the causes of anger, how to handle anger, and even how anger can be used for good. (Led by Brandon Lemons in the east half of the youth room.)

Small Groups & Bible Studies

It is vital for Christians to regularly meet with other Christians to help each other grow as followers of Jesus.  Small groups and Bible studies meet throughout the week and enable people to study and apply Scripture to their lives, pray for one another, hold one another accountable, and laugh and share life together.

Friedens has a variety of groups and studies.  For a current listing, please contact the church office or check out the Sunday bulletin that is available during worship services. 

Men's, Women's, & Family Ministries

Friedens' Men's and Women's Ministries offer gender-specific opportunities to connect and grow through Bible studies, social activities, service projects, conferences, and more.

Because Friedens values multi-generational ministry, we also have many activities that are geared for the entire family to enjoy.  Examples include: Christmas caroling, game nights, and photo scavenger hunts.  There is also a monthly potluck/social at Pastor Brandon's house for young adults and younger families; this potluck/social frequently has 30+ people in attendance and is a great way for the entire family to connect and have fun!  For families of 5th-12th graders, there are monthly social events for the entire family.
