Adults

Adult Christian Education and Formation offers classes and groups for adults to further their growth as followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that adults grow as disciples through learning, applying, and following the truth of Jesus Christ in the context of community. In our classes and groups, you will have opportunities for discussion, reflection, and the formation of mutually encouraging relationships.

Young Professionals

Are you in your 20’s or 30’s, single, or married without children? Looking for meaningful friendships, often hard to come by in ABQ? Longing for some deeper spiritual connection, or encouragement on the journey of following Jesus? Connect with other young professionals who are pursuing Jesus in the company of friends:

- Monthly social events: some of our young professional leaders host a social event about once a month. NEXT ONE: TBD

- Wed. evening small group: another young couple hosts a small group in their home, every Wednesday 7pm for Bible study and discussion.

To connect with either of these or if you're just looking for someone to listen in this stage of life, contact our church office.

Parenting &/or Marriage Classes

What parent doesn't need help, encouragement, and guidance? Visit our Classes tab below or our Wednesday Fellowship page for the most recent and upcoming opportunities for parenting and/or marriage.

Family Dinners

SPC families occasionally open their home to newly visiting SPC families who are looking to connect and build friendships in our church.

Tools for Discipleship at Home

Trying to figure out how to talk about Jesus in a meaningful way with kids of any age in your home? Try the Parent Cue app, which many SPC parents use to do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future.

Contact our church office for more info or to connect with any of these groups or opportunities!

Seniors

Senior Luncheons: On the third Wednesday of each month, Rev. Dewey Johnson hosts a Senior Luncheon in Fellowship Hall. Box lunches are available to order from Panera, you may bring your lunch, or even opt not to eat. Each luncheon features a different interesting speaker. The talks are on topics of particular interest to senior citizens: financial and legal issues, health and wellness, concerns about crime and scams, New Mexico and Albuquerque history, and more. Signups are in Fellowship Hall on the three Sundays prior to the event. Join us to meet other Sandians and enjoy a great presentation!

Contact Rev. Dewey Johnson for more info.

Small Groups

Looking for a group where you can consistently study God's word, pray for one another, share honestly in life's struggles together, and grow as a disciple? SPC offers a variety of groups to do that - men's, women's, co-ed, in-home, at church, etc. For more info on an existing group or starting a new group, contact our church office.

Classes

Discovering Local Missions

In our recent class from the book When Helping Hurts, we learned the following principles for meaningful Christian outreach to the materially and spiritually poor: 1) all mission work should help to reconcile our four basic relationships – to God, to self, to other people, and the rest of creation; 2) the three types of aid that are based on the situation – relief (response to a crisis), rehabilitation (recover from crisis), and development (long-term improvement); and 3) a key to development mission is the building of long-term relationships. As a follow-on to that class, the SPC Mission team is offering a six-week Sunday School class called Discovering Local Missions. We have invited guest speakers from six local ministries who embody the Christian principles described in When Helping Hurts. We invite you to come learn about these ministries and learn how you may find new ways to serve God in our community.

Taught by Steve Sobolik at 10:15–11:15 AM on Sundays, July 11–August 15. This will be a hybrid class offered both in-person in Room 214 and on Zoom.

Joshua – CrossCurrents

The Sunday School class CrossCurrents is reading and discussing Joshua to deepen our understanding of God’s faithfulness and righteousness and what it means for us to live in faith and obedience.

Led by Greg Chalmers and Margi Zoucha on Sundays in Room 218 at 10:15 AM starting July 11.

Monday Morning Missions

Monday Morning Missions is currently canceled until further notice.

The overall goal of this Sunday morning class is to equip Christ followers to share and live our faith Monday through Saturday at work, home, and at play. Led by Gary Oppedahl.

Foundational Truths for Christians

This Disciple class is studying the truths that are foundational for our lives as followers of Jesus Christ. Each class consists of a video by a distinguished scholar followed by discussion. This class meets on Mondays from 9–11 AM in Room 214 and on Zoom . Contact Lyle Petersen at  for more information.
