Adult Education

Christian Education is a ministry at Spring Hill Presbyterian Church for all ages so “that the man (and woman and child) of God may be adequately equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:17). Because the 21st Century poses difficult challenges to Christians, Spring Hill Presbyterian Church offers this ministry to everyone that they might “grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18) and “having all sufficiency in all things to abound to every good work” (2 Corinthisans 9:8) in our daily lives.

Each of our offerings promises members and visitors encouragement and challenge in their daily walk of being faithful Christians at home, work, school, and leisure.  We hope your experience of Christian Education at Spring Hill Presbyterian Church is life-affirming and faith-enriching.

Unless otherwise noted, all these classes meet Sunday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00.
