Here at Springvale we believe that one of the six essential movements in following Jesus is listening to God's word. This means that we spend time together, studying the Bible, learning and growing in our faith.
We have several adult class options at various days and times throughout the week. They vary in length and cover a variety of topics. Take a look and find the one that is right for you.
Summer Connect is an opportunity to study, discuss, share and pray with other Springvale people in small groups on any one or all Wednesdays 7-8:30pm, August 2-30. Pastor Phil will use the "Thriving in Babylon" video study by Larry Osborne to learn from the prophet Daniel how we can spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment.
These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they're attacked on every front. It's all happened at warp speed, leaving many of us spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment? And is there any hope for the next generation?
In this 5-session series, Larry Osborne introduces us to a man forced to live in a fast-changing and godless society. This man faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of a world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. That man was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only survived, but thrived.
Each session also includes real-life stories of people struggling to thrive in an ever-increasing godless society. Though Daniel lived thousands of years ago, he has much to teach us today.
Everyone has questions about faith, purpose and eternity. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions to explore those questions with refreshments, a video talk and open discussion in small groups. Alpha is ideal for those exploring, or very new to the Christian faith. Church attenders are encouraged to invite and accompany their friends.

Interested in joining a more permanent group? Life Groups are regular gatherings of a small group of people, usually in homes, joining together to become passionate followers of Jesus that are a redemptive presence in their communities. It is one of the only programs we strongly encourage all adults at Springvale to make a life priority. Visit our Life Group page for more information.
