“…Speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”
Ephesians 4:15-17 (NIV)

Rhythms of Discipleship
We also have various Life groups that meet in set seasons. In between the seasons, we have times of “All Church Discipleship” where all adults gather for Bible study or a teaching series.
Life Group / All-Church Discipleship Seasons
Generally speaking our seasons are as follows:
January | All Church Discipleship (Bible Study)
February - end of April | Spring Life Group Season
May | All Church Discipleship (Teaching Series)
June - mid-August | Summer Life Group Season
Mid-August - end of Novemer | Fall Life Group Season
We have several life groups which meet at various days & times for discipleship, Bible study, and encouragement.

Fellowship And Other Events
Women's Ministry - "Fresh Brewed Life"
Meeting throughout the year, these events include breakfast and hospitality for women of all ages. Come to share life together!
Church Friends Lunch
These post-worship luncheons are opportunities for fun, food, and fellowship multiple times a year. These usually take place at the church fellowship hall.
All church trips for service and worship allow us to serve together as a church family. Whether assisting communities in medium-to-long-term disaster relief or helping partner organizations with projects they need help with, these are great opportunities to draw close to communities in need, one another, and God.
