Bible Study

Life Groups for Women

These Life Groups 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.

Summer Bible Study

This summer we will be studying “Becoming a Woman of Simplicity” by Cynthia Heald on Monday nights at 7pm in the Activity Center. Each lesson stands alone, so you aren’t lost if you miss a week (or three!).  There is no book or homework and no fee for the study.  Our first week will be June 4th.

Monthly Socials

1st Fridays

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.

Our 1st Friday events resume in September.
