BIBLE STUDIES, DISCIPLESHIP & REGULAR MEETINGS

We have something for everyone... classes, prayer meetings, discipleship and Bible Studies. They are listed below, and at times also have classes for Parents and Families while your children are in AWANA. Check out all of our upcoming meetings below. We invite you to join us for our Sunday School Classes as well!

For everyone - Anytime

Join or start a Discipleship Group. 
Our goal is that everyone in our church family is either discipling someone or being discipled. Disciple groups help grow a closer relationship with God, and firmly establish faith. If you are interested in being discipled, or if you would like to pour your life into someone by discipling them, let us know. We can help with training and connecting. Disciple handbooks are available in the church office.

For everyone - every Sunday at 3 pm

Our Faith in Action is a weekly visitation program designed to share the Gospel, using the tools learned in Faith Evangelism, Roman Road and Evangelism Explosion. We provide "on the job training" to enable you to share your faith! Have you ever wanted to share your faith but were afraid because you didn’t know what or how to say it? Do you feel guilty when someone dies before you build up the nerve to share the good news of salvation with them? Do you want to obey Christ’s command (yes, command, not suggestion) to “go and make disciples”? Then Faith In Action is for you! This is our church’s new weekly visitation program. We will meet in the Prayer Room C110 on Sundays at 3 PM. You will be paired with someone experienced in sharing the Gospel. You won’t have to say a word, they will do all of the talking. All you will have to do is smile, pray silently, and watch the experienced leader share. You will learn by watching and hearing. Give it a try, you will be blessed!

For Kids - every Sunday at 5 pm

Every Sunday evening, join us for AWANA Clubs. This is a great way for children 3 years through 6th grade, to learn about God and have so much fun at the same time!
