Adult Ministries

Adult Christian Education is an integral part of the Strawbridge experience. We offer classes for all ages, with a variety of meeting times throughout the week. Adult Sunday school classes meet each Sunday at approximately 10:00 am (after our 9:00 am worship service and prior to our 11:05 am service). A variety of adult Sunday school classes are offered – each with its own special mix of styles and interests. Various classes pursue Bible study, study books by popular authors, cover topics on social concerns, or discuss family life issues.
