Adult Sunday Morning Classes

Make the most of your time at VPC on Sunday mornings by adding a class to worship!  One of the key components of spiritual formation (becoming more like Christ) is to talk with others about what we are learning.  Our Sunday morning classes offer the opportunity to connect with others who are also working to connect with others as well as to connect God with their daily lives.  Our Sunday morning classes strive to help participants connect with God, with each other, and with the world.  In addition to study, each class has time set aside to have fun together, and to serve together.  They are also wonderful options for parents needing childcare!  Why donít you try one of these classes out this fall!  If you need help finding a class that fits your interests, contact Deb at deb.crumbliss(at)viennapres.org or 703-938-9050 x108.
