Pastor’s Class on Sunday Mornings.

We hope the links in this menu will introduce you to what we have to offer in Christian Education and Music & Arts!

At Hancock, we try to provide the spiritual nutrients that will satisfy our hunger.  You don’t need to know what you believe, or what you need, or even what you want.  You just need to come and join in this community of folks.  The nutrients of worship, community, service and prayer will surround you.  In people who are more like you than they are different from you, you’ll find a commonality of experience, and support and challenge for your growth.

We believe that faith is a journey, not a destination… 

This is a place where you can ask questions, learn, discover, and grow.  Whether you are a novice to the church world, or a seasoned Bible expert, there are many opportunities to deepen your understanding of the Christian faith.

What does it mean to grow spiritually?  With what can it be compared?

Jesus once told a story, a parable, comparing our life with God to seed growing secretly (Mark 4:26-29).  Just as a seed gets planted, buried out of sight, so it often is with our spiritual hunger.  We can’t see it.  We often aren’t aware that it’s even present.  But the seed is not sitting passively underground.  New life is asserting itself as the seed germinates, seeks nutrients around it, and ultimately, desires to break up through the soil into the bright light of the new day.

So it is with the human desire for spiritual growth.  Long before we’re aware of it, before we can even name it, the human passion for God is asserting itself, seeking nourishment, looking to break out into new ways of thinking, feeling and acting.
