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.

Because of Covid, most our our groups as well as Wednesday Night Ministries are taking a pause this winter, though a few Zoom-based groups will meet. See below.

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

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.
