Sunday School

Adult Sunday School runs from September - May. This second hour education time meets in the Sanctuary from 11:00-11:45 AM. Classes will be taught by a variety of individuals. See the schedule below for more details.


April 21 & 28

The Shepherd and Sheep

Join us for a 2 week mini-series that will expand our learning from John 10. We’ll explore and discuss the meaning of what it means for God to be our shepherd and our role as the flock that follows. We’ll meet in Fellowship Hall.

May 5, 12, & 19

Dr. Robert Van Voorst (retired Professor of New Testament at Western Theological Seminary) will lead a 3 part series aimed at helping us consider how as Christians can live into biblical values in the polarized world that surrounds us.

  • Week 1:  Religious Nationalism.  (A look at the international phenomenon, with special attention to Christian nationalism in the US.)

  • Week 2:  Religious Pluralism.  (What can we learn from other religions?  How much of their ideas and practices can we adapt without compromising our Christian faith?)

  • Week 3:  How to be a Christian Citizen.  (The special duties of Christians in a democracy.)


Adults and youth are invited to participate in the Choir and Praise Band​.

Choir rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7 PM in the Sanctuary. The choir meets weekly from September-May, and several times during the summer.

The Praise Band meets Thursdays at 7 PM in the Sanctuary on weeks prior to leading worship. 

For more information, contact Catharina Matthews (Choir Director) or

Michelle VanGeest (Director of Music).

Women's Bible Study

The Women's Bible Study will be studying the book "Revelation: Extravagant Hope" by Margaret Feinberg. Join this great study and be part of a group of fellowship!

The group meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:45 AM - 11:30 AM in the Fellowship Hall. Some reading outside of the gathering time will be necessary. This is open to everyone, so whether you attend Thornapple on a weekly basis or not, we would love to have you! 


If you plan to participate, please contact us so we can get you the materials in time for the class to start on January 10, 2024.
