As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Small groups are an integral part of our church. Every week you’ll find people gathering in various places to do life together. As groups meet they are committed to the 7 Core Practices of Discipleship.
These 7 Core Practices equip us to be disciples who make disciples for Jesus! People are welcome to join a group at any time.

Adult Ministries

Sunday School

10:00am  - 11:00am

We offer many options for educational opportunities for adults on Sunday mornings. Whether you're interested in a certain topic of study, a specific age group or diving in deep to a particular book of the Bible, we have many choices for adult classes. These classes are always open to newcomers.

Wednesday Nights

Starts back up in August
Meal: 5:15pm - 6:00pm      
 Classes: 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Wednesday nights are a great time to re-charge during the week by joining together for the Gathering meal, then heading off to either a class or a small group.  Chidcare is provided, and classes for every age (kids, students, and adults) are available.


Various Times & Locations

Our small groups follow the 7 Core Practices and meet in all different kinds of locations, times, and demographics. Some small groups are all women, some are all men, some meet weekly, and some meet seasonally. Newcomers are always welcome!

Women's Spring Bible Study

Now That Faith Has Come

Now That Faith Has Come. A Study of Galatians. Beth Moore & Melissa Moore. The apostle Paul didn’t plan to go to Galatia. God used a physical ailment to guide Paul there, carrying the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with him. The relationship Paul would build with the Galatian converts – and his determination for the truth of the gospel to be preserved among them – led to one of the most passionate letters in the New Testament. Paul would not sit quietly by and let those who’d been liberated by Christ’s glorious gospel submit again to a yoke of slavery. He’d send a letter with the volume turned up – calling believers to stand firm in the truth, stay bold in love and walk by the Spirit. He’d remind them what it looked like to live for God’s approval rather than human approval. The eternal words God entrusted to Paul for the churches of Galatia are as needed today as they were when the ink was still wet on the ancient pages.

Join Beth and Melissa for a six-week deep dive into Paul’s captivating letter to the Galatians. Come to know the letter’s original recipients. Study its original context and embrace its timeless relevance. Discover – or perhaps rediscover – what makes the gospel of Jesus Christ revolutionary to those who choose to believe. Find out how everything has changed, now that faith has come (Gal 3:25 ESV).
