Classes
at HP Pres

Joining an adult class is a great way to build intergenerational relationships, hear transformative teaching, and discuss important topics. There are two types of classes that we offer: short-term Growth Courses and ongoing Adult Sunday Classes.

Growth Courses

Part of our church’s calling is to help guide your spiritual growth through intentional experiences designed to stretch you, help you become more like Jesus, and develop an ever-greater love for God and others.

This is why we offer Growth Courses: short-term intensive courses that take place on Sunday mornings, typically over 6–8 weeks with about 12 other people. Courses are designed with required homework, devotional practices, and group activities to help you develop spiritual skills and improve your everyday life.

Picking Your Growth Course

Which Growth Course is Right for me?

There are four stages along the Growth Pathway, defined by how one would describe their own spiritual growth and current relationship with Jesus. There are Growth Courses designed to be accessible for whichever stage of the Growth Pathway you find yourself on. You can either pick a class that sounds interesting, or you can read the statements below, decide which one best describes you, and then select a course that matches in the offerings below.

  • Exploring Jesus. People in this stage might say: “I am not sure about Jesus. I am exploring whether faith should be a more significant part of my life.”
  • Following Jesus. People in this stage might say: “I trust in Jesus and am learning what it means to follow him.”
  • Maturing in Jesus. People in this stage might say: “I am growing in my personal relationship with Jesus and depend on him daily for guidance.”
  • Surrendering to Jesus. People in this stage might say: “I am fully surrendering to Jesus as his disciple. He is the most important thing in my life and guides everything I do.”
