Classes, Programs, & Events

Discipleship classes, programs and events are intended to be stepping stones for people on the journey toward or in the with-God life.  The Bible studies, book studies and other classes that we offer all collectively help us to “grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ” (Ephesians 4:15). Questions on where or how to plug in?  Contact Lori at or 616.796.3361.

Contemporary Christian Life Issues (CCLI)

Sunday mornings
This class is currently in recess and will begin again in September 2018.

This class is currently in recess.  Beginning in September, come and explore the most current and relevant faith and justice issues affecting our community, nation, and world.  Speakers are often experts in their field. Feel free to just show up – September – November / January – April.  Advance registration is not required.

The Leadership Collective

Sunday mornings
This class is in recess and will begin again in September 2018.
Contacts:  Ryan & Kerri DeVries, Randy & Tami Rua, Rich & Diane Sinclair

Everyone is a leader somewhere – with family, at work, in the neighborhood, etc. When people gather, the question is not if leadership will happen but rather who and how and why.  What would it look like if some of West Michigan’s most influential leaders were to share their wisdom as a way of “passing the baton” from one generation to the next?  Come and hear the stories of success and failure – and lessons learned throughout – from our “faculty” speakers.  The class will follow a two-week format – the first week being a presentation from the speaker and the second week being more interactive and conversational through Q & A.  Each week and each speaker will be a new adventure – come join the community and the conversation.

Mid-Week Classes

People of Purpose

Wednesday evenings
In recess and will begin meeting again in September 2018
Contacts:  Andy & Katie Prins
Room 167

This is a continuously open group of young adults and young parents committed to laughing often, loving well, and to thinking “Christianly” about life in God’s world. This group is always welcoming to new people and meets on Wednesday nights when children’s programming is available.

Child Care is available for infants and toddlers and Children’s Ministry opportunities exist for children while parent or guardian attends this study.

Apples of Gold

Apples of Gold will be offered again in the Fall 2018
Watch for more details to come
Meets off-site in a mentor’s home

Apples of Gold is more than a women’s Bible study.  As you meet weekly, mature women mentor younger married women through:

  1. Topical Bible studies based on Titus 2:3-5
  2. Cooking demonstrations and the sharing of a meal
  3. Encouragement to be the woman God created you to be

Join other women in the Apples of Gold nurturing program and you’ll be blessed as you grow together in your love for God, your family, and others. (Participant cost: $15.00 (includes book and recipe binder).  If needed, scholarships are available.)

If you would be interested in being part of an Apples of Gold group or if you have an interest in being a mentor contact Lori at

Limited to 12 participants.
