Adult Discipleship

One of North Avenue’s core values is transformational faith development which suggests that each person continues to grow holistically in knowledge and faith throughout their lifespan. 

Sunday School

As our space is limited during construction, we have combined Sunday School classes. Join us for the Foundations Series at 10 a.m. in the Gym on the fourth floor. We welcome NAPC staff, officers, and congregation members, as well as special guests, to teach us. 

Upcoming Schedule for Foundations Series


  • Spiritual Practices for the Lenten Journey — The invitations of the Lenten liturgical season are many as we focus our hearts and minds on both the life of Jesus and our own human journey of faith. This class will explore the spiritual dynamics of Lent and practices that can serve to deepen our relationship with Jesus as we prepare our hearts for the joy of Easter. Join us on Sunday, February 11 in the Foundations Series at 10 a.m. in the Gym.

    Debra Weir has been a member of North Avenue for more than ten years. She has served the church as a ruling elder, a leader of the NAPC Spiritual Formation team, and co -chair of the annual Missions Conference. Debra is a spiritual director and currently serves the broader church as Associate Director for Spirituality and Lifelong Learning at Columbia Theological Seminary.
