Epic Adventures in Truth
Life is an adventurous journey. Epic Adventures in Truth is our version of Sunday School. Children and adults of all ages meet in smaller informal groups Sunday mornings at 9:30 am to delve into God’s word, discuss Bible truths, what they mean to us and how to apply them in our everyday lives.
At Truro Alliance Church we acknowledge the broken world that we live in and are committed to the safety of those who enter our building and “bump shoulders” with all walks of life. While we are “free to admit imperfection in an atmosphere of acceptance” we also include “safety measures/guard rails” to protect and promote a secure environment for children, youth, and leaders. All volunteers go through a screening process before being accepted into a volunteer position and leaders of children and youth are required to co-lead with another volunteer thereby never leaving any child/children alone and unaccountable. These policies are driven by compassion for victims and a sense of responsibility to society at large.
- There are groups for every age and we would love to see you join us!
- The Adult Class is currently working through Watchman Nee’s A Normal Christian Life which can be found HERE.
