Life Groups

What are Life Groups? Life Groups are one way that we can “do life together”.  We’d love to build relationships with you through Bible study, meals, shared experiences, conversations, serving others together, and being there for each other when a need arises.

Our new series, Making Space – Doing What Matters Most, begins Apr. 24th. This is an 8 week study about making space in our lives to do the right things at the right time with the right people. That’s a recipe for wisdom! Wisdom is applying the right truth at the right time in the right way, which produces abundant life for ourselves and others. The result of walking in wisdom is a satisfied life, not a hurried life.      

 

 

 

A Choice To Make Baby Bottle Campaign 

We are partnering with A Choice To Make  Pregnancy Crisis Center with their Baby Bottle Campaign again this year. It’s as simple as taking a baby bottle home on Mother’s Day, filling it with money, and bringing the bottle back on Father’s Day. This isn’t just money. You are a partner in the life-changing work of meeting the physical and spiritual needs of men and women facing an unplanned pregnancy. Your support reaches hundreds of people through education programs, abortion recovery counseling, pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and supplies mothers and children with the support they need.
