Join us for adult Sunday School! Join us as we seek to live out Crestwood’s mission to connect people to God and each other. Our classes combine study, conversation and reflection in a friendly, informal small-group setting.

We offer a variety of classes for all life stages and interests. Everyone is welcome as we take this next step in our faith journey together.

Choose from one of the classes listed below:

Anchor Class

Seekers Class
Leader: Libby Wachtel

This class explores a wide range of faith-provoking issues, from Bible study to social justice issues.
