Food & Fun Night
Every Thursday evening (except Holidays and bad weather) men and women of the church and their families, and friends meet for dinner at 6:00 p.m. followed by various small group activities including Bible studies, card games, Dominoes, and Prayer Shawl ministry. We end promptly at 8:00 p.m. with closing and prayer. Free child care is provided.

  Two adult Sunday School Classes are offered throughout the year providing an opportunity to take a deeper look at Scripture in a small group setting. Classes start at 10:30 AM, following fellowship time.

Children’s Sunday School
Sunday School volunteers lead youth in small classes divided by age in prayer and ministry. Classes are held following the worship services on Sunday from September through May.

 

Small Group Bible Studies

We have several small group Bible Studies in various homes at various times. Please check the newsletter for detailed schedules and places.

Mission Outreach
We volunteer our time with projects such as Red Bird Mission Trip, Henderson Settlement, Holiday Food Baskets, Angel Tree, Mitten Tree, and Haiti Relief efforts.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
Join the women of the church to help send a tangible sign of God’s amazing love and our ongoing support. Our group blesses prayer shawls, lap robes, baby blankets for new babies, and wedding shawls for brides. We also make flannel pillows to comfort surgical patients and flannel blankets for young children and mission homes.
