There are a number of classes offered throughout the year which change with the season. If you are interested in taking part in a class, they happen weekly on Sunday at 9am. The current series is Rick Ufford-Chase book Faithful Resistance. He is the former Moderator of the General Assembly and will be our Smythe Lecture Series speaker in March. The book is organized so that each class is a standalone topic. We would love to see you there!
You can also become a Sunday School Teacher for younger students. Please contact the church if you would like to join this energetic team!
There is a student table in the Narthex with information just for students. Please stop by and pick up information on upcoming events, Cooper House information (on-campus Presbyterian ministry), and other information.

The week before exams make sure to stop by and pick up your exam care package–snacks and treats to help you study.
