The Adult Ministry program offers opportunities to live the abundant life in Christ, using the Holy Bible as our standard.  Its programs proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and encourage a personal faith.  We strive to love others as God loves us and assist the community of believers to love God first and serve him appropriately. 

 

We encourage adults to reach UP to God in passionate worship, reach IN to one another as we grow through the study of God’s Word, and reach OUT to others with the good news of Jesus.  Our Communities are intentional gatherings of adults with the common purpose of discovering what it means to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  Our doors are always open to guests and the making of new friends in Christ! 

 

 

Men's Gatherings

Men

 

We have a passion to help men become devoted disciples of Jesus Christ and to help lead others to Him as well.  We desire to be transformed, sanctified, and prepared for all that God has for us.  We desire to live the glorious life and purpose for which we were created.  As Brothers in Christ, we serve Him, each other and the world He so loves – to His glory.

Women's Gatherings

Women

 

Women today are looking for fresh and fun ways to connect with other women and with Jesus.  Not only do we offer Bible studies and an occasional tea or retreat, we seek to provide something new and different.  Something relevant and relational that meets women where they are today.  Reaching and connecting women in and outside the church, our women’s ministry events are filled with fun and energy.  All women need girlfriends!  And that’s what we are about – helping women connect to other women and to Jesus.  We invite you to come and grow with us!
