We know it can be easy to get lost in the mix at a large church. Sunday School is where we make the big, small. Getting involved with a Sunday School class is the best way to find community at Shades. While we have age distinctions with most classes, feel free to join the class in which you are most comfortable.
Married Young Adult Sunday School
These classes have an average age under 42 and couples married more than one year. Groups are generally divided by life-phase (age, years married, number/ages of children, etc.) and meet at both 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. These classes utilize the church-wide Explore the Bible curriculum, along with quarterly focused content on marriage, parenting and discipleship.

Shades exists to send transformed people to influence their world for Christ.

To that end, DGroups exist to provide intentional structure for transformational discipleship where we engage in gospel dialogue, transparent friendships, and pursue spiritual maturity.
