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

There will be no Adult Sunday School on May 7. Instead, we invite you to First Sunday Coffee: Special Edition at 10 a.m. as we gather on the upper parking deck for coffee and tea from Community Grounds. Enjoy a good cup of coffee, on us, and spend some extra time with your church family.

Doc McKay teaches a series, “Close to God,” during the month of May. 

  • May 14: Glory God tells Moses about his glory in Exodus 33: 12-23. What is God’s glory, and does it have anything to do with me? Do I want to be around it?
  • May 21: Devotion The Apostle Paul describes one basis for devotion in Colossians 3:1-3. Do I have a private, personal relationship with God? Does my trusting him characterize my life?
  • May 28: Hope Psalm 121 tells us how God personally cares about his children.  Is my relationship with God dependable and lasting? Will he ever let me down?


June Schedule for Foundations:

  • June 7: The Church in Syria, Lessons in Faith and Faithfulness  Elder Marilyn Borst, who is with The Outreach Foundation (an NAPC mission partner), will recap her recent journey to Syria (her 17th) where she spent Holy Week in far northeast Syria.
  • June 11-25: Special Guest Sharol Hayner
