Adult Sunday School 
Winter 2018

At AVPC, our Sunday Schools are set up by communities - Acton Hall, Fellowship Hall, Pilgrims Community, Women's Bible Study, and College & Career. Each group is led by one or more teachers (often elders from that community) in a study each quarter. The Session encourages you to settle into a community where you are most comfortable. Once you have made that determination, we urge you to stay in that community to continue to develop relationships. It is our conviction that Christian growth, learning and nurture occur most effectively in the context of on-going relationships. Teachers and topics will rotate between communities, so if you have a favorite teacher or topic, wait a bit. It is likely to come to your community where you can learn in conjunction with your friends. Please see our map for more information on room locations. 

Pastor's Class

This class provides a “next step” for our visitors who might have an interest in learning more about our church, our teachings, our pastor and his wife. Every class begins with an informal question and answer time designed to deal with questions that may arise during a sermon, or just common questions people have about Christianity. The curriculum is flexible so you can join at any time.
