Adult ministries are part of our core programming at Berean, since we seek to "present every person complete in Christ." (Ephesians 4:7-16) We believe that as adults grow in their relationships with God and one another, they will be empowered to live for Christ and to raise their children in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Berean Series

The Berean Series is a sequence of classes that introduces newer attenders to our beliefs and practices based on the Word of God. As an attender, you will learn about our church, beliefs, church membership, and opportunities to grow and serve. It is offered twice a year, usually during the first hour. The classes are listed below in order:

Berean 101: Introduction to Berean Community Church

Berean 102: Getting connected to Berean Community (you will be offered an opportunity to become a member of BCC at the end of this class)

If you have questions about the Berean Series, feel free to contact Jim Kluth, director of adult enrichment, at or call the church office at 507-289-4179.

Disciple Training

Our mission as a church to to develop devoted, joyful disciple makers of Jesus Christ.  To that end, we offer many opportunities for spiritual growth where ever you may find yourself in your journey with Jesus Christ. Our children, student, singles, women, and men ministries each are focused on helping people make spiritual progress.

Sunday Adult Enrichment Classes

At Berean Community Church we believe that studying the Word of God will lead to a deeper relationship with God and a better knowledge of His will for us. For this reason we offer Sunday Adult Enrichment Classes (AEC’s).

We encourage all adults who are not serving simultaneously in another ministry to participate in these electives. There is no monetary cost and you can join an elective at any time.

If you are a newer attender and want to learn more about plugging in at Berean, please consider signing up for the Berean Series.

2019 Fall Offerings

The Right Thing (Jim Kluth, Room 101)
As adults, we're faced with hundreds of decisions every week. Some are easy, but others leave us tossing and turning in our sleep or on our knees in prayer. What's the right thing to do? In this class, we'll explore the basics of Christian ethics. We'll discuss the role that the Bible, the Holy Spirit, secular law, and community and personal values play in these decisions. Books will be provided.

The Life of David (John Downer, Room 102)
Take a deep dive into the life of the "man after God's own heart" as we explore his triumphs, strengths, trials, flaws and failures and contemplate what they mean for the human condition and our own walks with the Lord.


The men's ministry prepares men to be more effective men of God by providing opportunities to encourage each other, be trained in life skills and grow in their walk with Jesus Christ. This is done through Men's Breakfasts, Retreats, Small Groups, Special Outreaches and 1-1 Discipleship.

The Men's Ministry at Berean has a group on Facebook. The purpose of this group is to share information on upcoming activities, photos from previous events, and thoughts on a variety of subjects.


The women's ministry reaches out to women with Christ's love and encourages their growth in Christ. We seek to unify women through outreach, worship, fellowship, Bible study and service. This is done through a Mentoring Program, Bible Studies, Retreats, and Special Outreaches.
