How Do I Meet People?
Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church. Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins. 
 
Adult Sunday School

Children’s Ministry
Your children are important to us, we have recently updated our children’s area by installing a state of the art check in. If you are new please be prepared to supply some information to help us keep your children safe. Each Sunday morning from 9 am to 10 am, our children are taught by dedicated teachers to connect children to Christ and disciple them to know Him, worship Him, trust Him and obey Him and provide a safe, fun and loving environment in which children can grow. They are taught biblically sound – age appropriate and culturally relevant lessons.   Our nursery and Kids Connection is open during the following times and where we share the gospel and showing Christ’s love for children in word and deed.

To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Women’s Ministry
Women’s ministry give the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, located in several locations throughout our community, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church. Currently the following studies are available:
 
  • AM Women’s Bible Study meets at 10:00-11:30 AM on Tuesday mornings in Fellowship Hall of the CE building.  Led by Joan Noll.  Now in session and studying Part 2 of the Tommy Nelson study on Romans.
  • PM Women’s Bible Study led by Suzy Billman is held on Monday’s 6:30-8:00 PM in Fellowship Hall of the CE Building.  The evening Bible Study is meeting now thru the middle of May.
 
 
Small Groups
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, our church has small Bible studies held in member homes and on campus. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve people. At a time designated by your group leader, you can sign up for a small group study or just get more info by clicking here.
