Plugging into a Connect Group
It's one of the best ways to grow as a believer in Christ, no matter how long you've been walking with Jesus. We need the encouragement that comes from doing life with other believers! Check out these great groups, find one (or more than one!) to try, and connect with the leader to let them know you're coming.
Do you have a heart for missions? This group is open to anyone who does. We hear from a different church-supported missionary or missionary family every month and pray for them, and we also enjoy a potluck meal together. We meet from 11:45 am until about 1:30 pm. Please bring a dish to share.
Still love the old hymns? We're going deep in worship with the hymns and singing our hearts out! We meet every other Sunday; bring a light refreshment if you can. You may want to purchase Hymns for the Family of God, by Bryan Leech. This group is open to everyone, but please, no young children.
In a culture increasingly indifferent or hostile to Christian truth, followers of Christ need to be equipped to communicate with those who do not accept our source of authority. This fall we're tackling the Tactics Study Guide (Updated and Expanded): A Guide to Effectively Discussing Your Christian Convictions, by Gregory Koukl. Order the book here.
Our heart is to tune into God's heart for evangelism and revival. Through videos, news articles, books and testimonies, we seek to grow in walking in the Spirit and praying for the movements of God in our world. Meeting locations rotate; contact Lila for details.
Spanish-speaking adults are warmly invited to come together once a week for Bible study and fellowship. Please contact Marcelo if you are interested in joining, and please bring your Spanish Bible!
Crafts and conversation for women of all ages -- join us, we always have fun! Bring a snack to share if you can; minimal payment for supplies may also be requested. This year's projects: fall wreath (Oct 9); etched glass (Nov 13); cookie exchange and banner (Dec 11); woodburning (Jan 8), and felt flowers (Feb 12). March 11 is TBD.
Men, we're reading and discussing The Return of the Gods, by Jonathan Cahn. Be sure to purchase the book before the first meeting. Cahn's book should make for some fascinating discussion on some of the influences and potential influences on our culture today.
For mothers of adult children who are concerned about their kids. We join our prayers for our own kids and each others', lifting them up individually and corporately before the throne of grace. At the beginning of each meeting we take time to encourage each other with the things we see God doing in our kids' lives!
For mothers of young children. Come join us for encouragement, prayer, fellowship with other young moms — and coffee! Free childcare is available, too. Meeting dates are Sept 8 and 22, Oct 6 and 20, Nov 3 and 17, Dec 8, and Jan 5 and 19.
"Iron sharpening iron" (Proverbs 27:17). This is a men's group focused on fellowship, Bible study and prayer. We seek to encourage each other and apply the Word of God together to draw closer to him and walk in integrity.
Our group is connected with Street Reach ministry and meets whenever Street Reach meets. This fall we're studying the life of Jesus in the book of Matthew.
Come on over for a Friday night hangout! All are welcome — ages 0 to 100 — families with children, singles, everyone. Please bring a dish to pass.
Men who love board games and strategy games, along with a little brotherly fellowship, will enjoy this gathering. High school guys are welcome, too. Please bring a snack or soft beverage to share.
