The Soul Survivors class meets in room 117.  They use the “Faithweaver Now” study guide which has an emphasis on families and our faith.

The OPUS class meets in room 116.  Leaders take turns facilitating Bible studies corresponding with Pastor Tom’s Sunday morning Sermon Series and other topics of interest.  This group has been described as “rowdy” and “lively”.  No matter what the term, they are always a good time.
