Set us afire, Lord,
Stir us, we pray!
While the world perishes
We go our way,
Purposeless, passionless,
Day after day.
Set us afire, lord,
Stir us, we pray
-by Ralph S. Chushman

The Holy Spirit is stirred within us when we study scripture and pray, not only as individuals, but in community as well. The community helps us to be accountable to those things we say are important to witnessing for Christ, but we often forget about when we leave the church campus. So this day, and every day after, I pray that we are set afire in some way. We offer adult Bible Studies here at Catalina along with Mission Projects, worship, fellowship. We are open to all people (which we define as ALL people, no exceptions…so yes, that means you!) and new ways of deepening our spiritual journey.

Sunday School Classes

Catalina offers several different Sunday morning Sunday School classes for adults. Each class has a different focus. Anyone is welcome to attend. For more information regarding these classes, please contact Marjie at
