Bible Study

Life Groups for Women

Life Groups for Women revolve around studying the Bible as we do life together as women. Life Groups begin in September and January each year. Our Wednesday morning studies feature a time of fellowship and worship before we study and provide a fun, safe environment for your child while you study God’s word. During the summer of 2019, we will study “Resolved: 10 Ways to Stand Strong and Live What You Believe” by Lina Abujamra. This is a series of stand-alone lessons with no homework, so please join us Monday evenings in the Activity Center at 7:00 pm as you are able. There is no cost or registration required and we do not have childcare during this study. If you’d like more information, please contact our Women’s Ministry Director, Jen DeGroff, here.

We come together on the 1st Friday evening of each month Sept-May at 7 pm for a social activity. Activities rotate and include Socials, Service Projects, Movie Nights and Game Nights.
