Classes

Orchard Classes

Our classes are for every person, at every stage of life. Whether you have a lot of time or a little, whether you’ve studied Genesis five times or never opened the Bible, there is a class for you here.

Classes give you a place to learn about God’s Word and a people to grow with along the way. All classes vary in length and meet for 1-2 hours. During that time, you’ll hear teaching from The Orchard staff and trained teachers and discuss what you’re learning with others and how you can apply what your learning to your lives.

All classes at The Orchard have a set end date and teachers will rotate. There are 3 categories of classes at The Orchard. They are:

  • Assimilation Classes - provide an immediate entry point for guests and those looking to connect. These classes are multi-generational can co-ed. People can join them at any time. (Note: these classes will be launched in 2019.)
  • Core Classes - designed to equip believers to make disciples, who make disciples and to shape sound doctrine and DNA of believers.
  • General Classes - designed to address specific subject matters (e.g. - parenting, marriage, finances, etc.).
