Adult Ministries

SCC women’s retreat

At Shoreline Covenant Church we seek to provide opportunities for adults to grow in their understanding and practice of the Christian Faith and thereby deepen their relationship to Jesus Christ. Our ministries to adults provide a range of options for learning, growth and fellowship throughout the year

Here are the ministries we offer to help adults pursue a life of discipleship with Jesus.

To get involved, or for more information on any of these ministries, please click on the links below or contact the SCC office. We’d be glad to connect with you!

 

Sunday School Classes

September through May, adults of all ages meet at 9:00am for a variety of educational opportunities, including participatory Bible studies, guest lecturers, and elective classes that cover a wide range of topics. Recent topics have included the life of Abraham; C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters; how to hear and discern God’s voice; and racial reconciliation. Nursery care and Sunday school are available for children and youth during this time period as well.

Current Sunday School options:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our planned Lenten Sunday school classes had to be canceled. However, we anticipate beginning a live-streamed adult Sunday school class within the next few weeks. Check back for more information, or follow us on Facebook @shorelinecovenant to stay up-t0-date!

AVA (Advocacy for Victims of Abuse)

The Evangelical Covenant Church addresses sexual assault and its related concern, domestic violence, through the Advocacy for Victims of Abuse (AVA) initiative. As a church we acknowledge the reality of brokenness and sin in the world as well as the power of the community to heal brokenness through Jesus Christ. AVA informs, educates, and raises awareness in our congregations and communities.
