Adult Ministry

Connect with others and grow in your faith.

Discipleship Groups + Wednesday Night Ministries

Spiritual growth happens best when we personalize it with others in smaller settings. We want to help you grow spiritually, connect with God, and connect with others. A great way is in Discipleship Groups.

Most our our groups as well as Wednesday Night Ministries resume this September, though a few Zoom-based groups are meeting. See below.

Sunday morning Bible study at 9am. Led by Pastor David Gaddini, we'll help you navigate the storyline of the Bible.

(Also visit our Faith Training page for daily spiritual exercises and how to set up personalized spiritual fitness plans.)


Pastor-led Bible Study

The Bible is an amazingly complex and detailed book. It's easy to lose sight of the forest in the trees. Pastor Dave will take you through the major moves, themes, and chronology of how the story fits together.

Moms Praying

We watch out kids grow through high school and college. Sometimes the only thing we can do is pray. It's powerful. Send your requests for your child and yourself and we'll coordinate prayer for each other.
