• LIFE GROUPS (Kids, Youth & Adults)


DSC_8065 copyPreschool and Younger: After the children’s message, the children (preschool age and younger) are invited to the nursery where they will be offered a safe, loving, nurturing atmosphere of care. As the children’s message ends look for the two leaders standing at the entrance to the Sanctuary, and they will lead your children down to the nursery. Also know that your young ones are more than welcome to remain in worship. We have a table at the back of the sanctuary with some activities to help them engage in the worship with your guidance.

Kids will be invited at the time to head out of the sanctuary with our trained and excited leaders. They meet in the classroom down the hall of our education wing, and we ask that parents pick them up at the class room at 11:15. While you’re waiting, grab a cup of coffee and chat with a friend!
6th-8th Grade Youth Group: 6th-8th Graders meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm for a fun and interactive time of connecting with God and one another. We also pizza for a $1/slice at 6:15 in our Gathering Area. Then students head to the Youth Room. For more information or questions contact Children and Youth Minister, Erin Evans.

9th-12th Grade: We are currently working to grow and define our ministry with high school students.

Youth Missions: Each year our students have the opportunity to participate in a week long mission trip or youth camp, and a weekend youth camp. This year students are traveling to the Quad Cities from July 16-21 for a week of service in that area. The trip is currently full, but if your student would like to attend, contact Erin Evans to find out details, as there still may be a way to participate.

Adult Christian Education (ACE): Adults interested in digging more deeply into the Scriptures are invited to join us from 11:15-Noon on Sundays (between Labor Day and Memorial Day) for a casual time of wondering and discussing about scriptures used in our Sunday Sermons and other studies. We also have other small group communities and Bible Studies that meet at other times and other places. For more information about these groups or if you’re interested in starting a Life Group, talk to Pastor Paul!
