Our many ministry opportunities are a great chance for you to get connected and take your relationship with God to the next level!

  • Popcorn Series

    This group meets Sunday mornings at 9:45am in Fellowship Hall and is comprised of people of all ages. This group is designed to be an easy access point for people to participate in a class without being fully committed - a way to dip your toe in before you take the full leap.  Popcorn and other refreshments are provided and participants watch a video followed by a very brief time of discussion.  Don Giles is the facilitator.

Short-Term Small Groups

When Helping Hurts

We all want to help.  That is part of what we are called to do as the body of Christ.  But, sometimes, we do more harm than good.  Join us for a 6-week study that will give you a biblically based understanding of the root causes of poverty and how best to help!  This is a 6-week study that we offer multiple times throughout the year.  If you would like to sign-up, please follow this link.


Financial Peace University


No more money fights! With Financial Peace University, you and your spouse will learn how to create (and stick to) a budget, save for emergencies, and make a plan for the future. Doesn’t that sound peaceful? We are offering FPU - a 9-week study just for you again soon.  If you’re interested in learning more, send us a message! You can also visit https://fpu.com/1085946  to sign up!
