Growing in Groups

Spiritual growth happens when we are connected with our community of faith.  And that connection comes best when we are involved in groups of some kind. We desire people to go deeper than just the friendly Sunday morning times to grow together!

Women's Ministries

Men's Ministries

  • Men's discipleship

    Men's discipleship takes place in the fall, winter and spring.  We commit to be there whenever the discipleship group meets.  This group gathers weekly on Monday nights at 7:30 PM.  It includes a teaching session, a group discussion, and a time of accountability with another member of the group. Because of the accountability and group discussions, each session builds on the last, consistency is important.
