Ways to CONNECT during the week
Adult Community Groups
For WOMEN: PATHFinders – Our Ladies group meets in the church CAFE from September through April each Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 pm. ALL ladies age 16 & up are invited to step back from the chaos of life one night a week and join other women who desire to know our God better. We gather as seekers of our Father’s heart. Our commonality is that we are all sinners saved by His amazing Grace, and we want to learn to live life the way He designed us to. We gather each week for spiritual growth, encouraging friendships, and just plain fun! We have designed this growth group to be an encouragement to YOU as you grow in your faith in Christ.
For MEN: MASH (Men Actively Seeking Him) – Our Mens Growth Group meets in the Conference Room at 1133 Vestal Ave, adjacent to the church, from September through April each Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 pm. It is not uncommon for men to “free solo” life, but the truth is we live better when we commit ourselves to honest and open community. Men’s Growth Group is a step in that direction. Join us Tuesday evenings as we look at life the way God designed for it to be lived and as we honestly make changes that will help us look more like our Savior.
For ALL: OASIS Summer Bible Study & Small Group – We want to stay CONNECTED to our Father God and to each other during the summer months. Our growth groups continue to meet during the months of June and July but in a slightly different format. Men, Women, Teens, and children are all welcome to be a part of our time. There is no nursery or childcare provided, but if your child is able to sit quietly we are confident that they would benefit greatly from this study. We spend time praying, worshipping, fellowshipping and learning. Most recently we used the DVD curriculum by Andy Stanley called “Guardrails.”
Guardrails. They’re everywhere, whether we need them or not. The thing about guardrails is that we don’t need them…until we do. And when we need one, it can be the difference between life and death. You rarely notice guardrails until you are in an accident where one saves your life. The damage done by hitting a guardrail is minor when compared to what you would have hit had it not been there. The same is true with a variety of principles in God’s Word. When we abide by God’s Guardrails we can avoid a heap of life trouble.
Student Community Groups
- For TEEN students: Teens have a weekly small group time Sunday mornings at 9:30 before the morning service. Pastor Mike and other leaders also offer a high energy game & fellowship gym night on Wednesday evenings once a month from 6 to 8. Some of the favorite monthly activities include Splash-a-Rama, World’s Largest Ice Cream Sundae Nite and Nacho Average Game Nite. ALL students in grades 6 through 12 are invited to these events.
- For CHILDREN grades K through 5: ParKids – Children of this age meet weekly on Sunday mornings during the morning service for a time of high energy worship, games, and Bible teaching.
- For the LITTLE ONES: Nursery care is provided during all regular church services. A silent paging system alerts parents should a need arise. Our trained staff is ready to welcome your child into our baby & toddler environment designed specifically for little ones.
