Classes

Classes provide rich opportunities to grow deeper in discipleship. We grow in knowledge for sure, but we also grow in healthy friendships that encourage and support us. And we get to encourage others too. As we are able to share from real life experience and apply scriptural teachings, we grow in our faith and in our relationship with God. Here at Schweitzer, we encourage everyone to participate in classes and groups. Whether you are just getting started or going deeper, there are classes listed here where you will find places to belong and to grow. New short-term classes are featured on the homepage as they are offered.
