As the name suggests, a group of younger adults meets at 9:30 a.m.
Sundays to study scripture and to brainstorm outreach into the broader Charleroi
community. In this class, you’ll learn about God’s word and you’ll get a chance
to step outside the four walls of the church to take a hand in God’s work.
Pastor Charlie teaches the Young Adults Class.
A group for women of all ages. Meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second

This adult Sunday School class meets at 9:30 a.m. Sundays to study
and discuss God’s word. They also sponsor an Easter breakfast, along with soup
and sandwich luncheons twice a year. They also financially support Vacation
Bible School and the church’s community action programs. They take a role in
Meals on Wheels, and they send Guidepost Magazine subscriptions to military
personnel. And they have fun: each year, social outings include at least one
Washington Wildthings baseball game and a road trip to Sand Berry Hill Farm.
