Life Groups

Mid-size Life Groups are a great place to connect to fellow faith-filled folks on Sunday mornings. Groups range from 20-70 in size and are mostly formed by age and stage of life. Their purpose is to build community while studying God’s Word. No need to pre-register before attending—you’ll be warmly welcomed whenever you’re able to pop in.

Parenting Teens

As your children grow and change, so do their parenting needs. So where do you go for support and encouragement as your kids move into their teen years?

A topic will be presented at the gathering each month to guide the discussion.

Dwelling with God

The Garden of Eden was our first sacred space, but God has also provided sanctuary through the tabernacle in the Sinai Desert, and then through Jesus, our ultimate true temple. Follow the fulfillment of God’s covenant from Abraham to Moses, and discover how to find sacred space and dwell with God. Class taught by Kyle Otto, Care Ministry Intern.

Class facilitated by Angie Smith, and open to men and women of all ages.
