We use the “Explore The Bible” Series as we study the Bible one book at a time. The continuity of a book study helps to understand the need to grow in our faith. As our lives change (body, soul and spirit), we learn our Heavenly Father is all-sufficient to care for His children. He is forever nurturing us toward a more mature faith. In group time, there is lecture, testimonies, questions and comments. We would enjoy having you join us in this challenging quest toward growth.

We are a friendly bunch who enjoys doing life together. We are very informal, and our small group lessons are discussion-based inductive study of the Scriptures. Meeting on Sunday evening allows participants with service roles on Sunday mornings to have an opportunity for Life Group time. We start with brown bag dinner, catch up on life and share our praises and prayer concerns before diving into God’s Word. We emphasize a balanced and thoughtful approach to the study of Scriptures, connecting the profound truths of timeless wisdom to the grace necessary to meet the practical demands of daily life. Our goal is to help guide believers of varying ages to move their faith from theory to action. We participate in service projects for the church and community, plus regular         informal group outings.
