  • Sunday Nights at 6pm

    At the heart of the Bible is the story of God's pursuit of a relationship with humanity. The Story reveals the narrative of that pursuit using selected portions of the NIV text, making the Bible's stories, poems, and teachings come together in 31 accessible chapters that read like a novel. Readers will follow the unfolding progression of the Bible's characters and events from Genesis to Revelation.  When you come to know the story of Scripture more clearly, you'll be prodded to explore the Scriptures even more deeply. 

    This is a study that will be covered appropriately for all ages, elementary through adult.  This study begins January 14 at 6pm.   Adults will meet in the sanctuary, youth in the Fellowship Hall, and elementary students in the Kids Zone.

  • Wednesdays at 7pm

    Starting January 10, we will continue our Through the Bible study with the Book of Exodus.  Wednesday nights you can join us for Bible study as we return to the Old Testament and the miracles of God.

  • N2Y - Discipleship

    The Apostles’ Creed finds its genesis in the apostles’ teachings and contains essential Christian doctrines and beliefs that summarize the gospel and make up the foundation of our faith. The scriptural truths contained in the creed help us to operate out of good theology, not bad theology, with the knowledge that our faith is rooted in truth and a rich history that spans past and present. The lines of the creed aren’t mere words. They are the essence of what we confess and believe.

    This is a 12-week study set on Wednesday nights at 7pm.

  • Children in Action

    On Wednesday evenings, our children will participate in a missions program.  Children in Action is a missions disipleship program for children in grades K-6.  Every boy or girl has an important place in Children in Action.  Members of Children in Action learn about and pray for missions.  They do missions work and give money to missions.  Plus, they have a great time. 


  • Mission Friends

    How early can a child begin learning Christian missions concepts? The preschool years. From age two to pre-kindergartners, Mission Friends provides the building blocks of faith and a basic awareness of God's love for all people.  Join us on Wednesday nights as we learn how to serve and share the love of Jesus. 

  • Schedule Changes

    Due to the need for volunteers, we will no longer be able to offer this program on Sundays. We invite you to use our family room during those service times.  We regret any inconveniences this may cause you and your family, and we will update our information as soon as we have enough volunteers to continue.


  • Relevant Adult Small Group

    Looking to join a small group that talks about the situations facing you today?  Join us as we look to scripture for guidance on family, marriage, career choices and other challenges facing Christians in today's world.  God's Word is relevant.  Our next study begins on May 7 on  Sunday mornings at 9:45 AM.

  • Family Room

    Great news! Our family room is now open for you to use during our church service times. It's a private room that allows parents to view and participate in service, while being in an environment that is safe and fun for younger children. Ask our greeters on Sunday, where you can find our family room.
