Jesus called His followers to a more abundant life; a life beyond the grind. However, to receive this full life, God must TRANSFORM our lives into new creations. This transformation comes from our belief in Christ's death, burial and resurrection and our submission to follow the teachings of the Bible (God's Word). Romans 12:2 says that we will be transformed by the renewing of our minds, which sums up the purpose of Adult Ministries. Our goal is to help each person become a disciple of Jesus. Where each person has a growing relationship with God (Up), with others in a small group (In) and in reaching out to the world with the love of Jesus (Out).
We also believe an essential part of transformation is to study God's Word with other people! The Bible is clear that we are supposed to be in community with fellow believers, sharing life and meals (Acts 2:42-47) and spurring one another on in love (Hebrews 10:24-25). Below are some opportunities to do just that! We know you will be able to find a group that's just right for you!
Community Groups are small groups that meet each Saturday night and Sunday morning. All Community Groups are designed for new people to jump in on any weekend. No cost or previous Bible knowledge is required and on Sunday you can leave your children in their class while you attend yours. Bible study is available for all ages; we believe God can move in each life, from the smallest toddler to the most senior adult!
Check out the Grow Together Brochure for class listings and descriptions.
Community Groups meet at 7:30 p.m. following worship. All classes meet in our "B" building.
Community Groups are available during the 9 and 10:30 a.m. services on Sunday morning. Classes are provided for Birth-6th grade during both hours so you can choose which hour to attend Bible study.
Family Experience (FX): Short-term Bible studies that meet on Sunday evenings 10 weeks in the Fall (September - November) and again in the Winter (January - March) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Family Experience includes small groups for the entire family. Studies each semester vary but can include topics such as marriage parenting finances, men's studies, women's studies, mom's studies and a study for your teenagers. All children's studies include Bible time, game time and snacks. 3 year olds - 2nd grade studies are entitled Kid Quest and 3rd - 6th grade studies are entitled Break-In. Childcare is provided for Birth - 2 yr olds.
All FX groups can be joined anytime, just make sure you register! Any cost added is to cover materials for the class. Approximate costs are $10 to $15 per book for adults and teens and $10 per child. There is a $40 family limit per semester. Childcare for birth - 2 years old is free.
