Wednesday

Book Study

led by Pastor Chris

We are trying a new concept of offering one study with two different time options. Pastor Chris will be leading the study offered January 6 through February 10. This six-week study will be offered at 10 AM and 7:30 PM on Wednesdays. Choose the time that fits your schedule best. Each session will begin with a 15-minute check in/prayer concerns and then a 45 minute study with Q&A at the end. The total time on Zoom will be one hour until the last event on February 10 which will include a Trivia Game night with prizes! 


Register today and order your book: The Lord and His Prayer by N.T. Wright. We would like to have at least 8 participants in each time slot and appreciate you signing up below. Registered participants will be included in three give away drawings. Each for a different book and you will need to be present to win! Our church has a strong tradition of a midweek gathering for fellowship, education, worship, and service together.

Sisters in Spirit

The Sisters In Spirit small group will begin a new study on January 15, 2021.  We warmly welcome any women of the church to join us by zoom on Friday mornings 10:00 - 11:15 AM for fellowship, prayer and discussion.  Our new study will be focused on a recently published book by Barbara Brown Taylor titled Always a Guest: Speaking of Faith Far From Home.  This is a collection of sermons given by the author as a guest preacher at churches all over the country.  Since Barbara Brown Taylor is widely acclaimed as an outstanding preacher, we are excited to begin this study!


Sisters in Spirit is a small group of 10 - 15 women who meet every Friday morning on Zoom from 10-11:15 AM for fellowship, support, study and prayer. No worries if you can’t attend every week. If interested, contact Martha Johnson, Cindy Blackburn or Dianne Wood. We would love to have you join us! 

Growth Groups

Growth Groups are small groups that meet in members' homes or at church. New groups form each fall and spring and meet for a couple months. Click here to see information about the most recent book and groups.


Growth Groups provide a time of connection with others and with God as we will spend time getting to know each other, discussing the book, and praying for one another each week. We hope you will prayerfully consider joining a group.
