Adult small groups are a great way to get involved, meet new people and grow in your faith. Groups meet at various times and start throughout the year.

Please visit our Men's and Women's Ministry pages for more group study opportunities.

Margin – A Book Study

Margin is the space that once existed between ourselves and our limits. Today we use margin just to get by. This book study is for anyone who yearns for relief from the pressure of overload. Reevaluate your priorities, determine the value of rest and simplicity in your life, and find the real source of your identity. The benefits can be good health, financial stability, fulfilling relationships, and availability for God’s purpose. Register HERE.

 

Finding Jesus in the Psalms

Barb Roose guides the reader through a meaningful encounter with the Psalms through the season of Lent. Combining an interpretation of the psalms with real life stories, the study moves through the familiar words of Psalm 23 toward the painful cries of Psalm 22 uttered by Jesus on the cross. The study includes reflections on the life of King David and the original context of the writings, along with connections between the psalms and the life and death of Jesus the Messiah.
