One of the best ways to experience an ongoing sense of fellowship in a church family is to regularly participate with a class, group, or ministry. Each of these environments give us the chance to mature in faith and grow in our love for one another and love for God. This happens as we make our way through three important aspects of our interaction with Scripture. The first is knowing the Bible in which we become literate with the information in the Bible. The second is doing theology in which, by the help of God’s Spirit, we consider how a particular passage or theme from the Bible relates to our current situation and the world around us. The third is living the gospel in which we put the first two tasks into practice in a way that brings life, hope, and love to the people around us.

While we are constantly doing all three of these tasks simultaneously, you might say that our classes lean into the first task, our groups provide opportunity for the second task, and our ministries engage us in the third task. Read on to learn more about our classes, groups, and ministries.

Journey Groups, our small group ministry, meet together each week to grow, learn, have fun, and develop friendships! Join one our groups, make some new friends, and walk together through the good times and hard times of life. Doing life in community is about belonging and knowing that you are not alone. You can learn more about current group availability when placing membership.
