Sunday School

  • The Journey

    This group meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45am and is a multi-generational small group facilitated by Kim Laine & Abby Nightingale in Room 102 of the Fellowship Hall. Conversation is guaranteed to be as diverse as the makeup of the group.  After donuts and coffee, discussion begins at 9:45 am.

  • The Walk

    This group meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45am in Room 104 of the Fellowship Hall, and is taught by Lloyd Norris & Marilyn Dawson. This group is open to all adults whether you are a single or couple.  We are currently using Rick Warren's "What on Earth am I Here For?'' as our discussion guide.  Our discussions stem from our life experiences and our WALK with God.  The book is broken up into days, then weeks, each day dealing with a different topic.  If you attend in mid study it's easy to fit in. One member describes us as a group who laughs, cries, shares life experiences and explores scripture. Please join us!

  • 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.

  • Adalante

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 beginning on Thursday,  June 6th.  If you would like to sign-up, please follow this link.
