Men and Women of Reid Memorial
While worship is the center of our life together as a congregation, the adult education and small group experiences are where people receive the teaching they need to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ, learn more about the Christian life, and become connected to others in our Reid Memorial community of faith. Our adult ministry focus is to nurture, support and encourage adults in their spiritual journey towards God through creative and structured programs of study and fellowship.
Sunday School – 9:30 – 10:15 AM on Sunday mornings
