Chapel in the Pines offers a variety of programs that will foster growth of our faith in a welcoming atmosphere in small groups.  If you have ideas about forming a small group, please discuss them with Barbara Strange, Education Committee chair.  We are open to new groups and also encourage your involvement in the groups now formed.  We hope you will find the right group for you. 

Sunday Classes

Exploring Together

Begins at 9:00 a.m. -  We welcome new members at any time. We meet in the Exploring Together Classroom in the Education wing of the building. This class is studying the New Testament book of Acts, which relates the founding and early history of the Christian Church.

Modern Faith

This class is especially directed to young adults and parents of young children (although anyone is welcome to attend).  The class meets in the Youth Room at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday morning.  


Literature and Spirituality Class

The Literature and Spirituality Group is reading the short story, "A Good Man is Hard to Find," by Flannery O’Connor. O’Connor once described her stories as being about the offer of God’s grace to a person.  We will discuss this book on March 26, 2017, at 12:30 at a member’s home.  Everyone is welcome! Good fellowship and good food always abounds.  If you want to join the discussion and/or would like a link to a printed copy of the story, please contact Todd Adams at
