Small Group Opportunities

Men’s Bible Study: 2nd Wednesday of the Month at 6:00am   Quiet Strength, Men’s Bible Study explores six tough questions men ask. Each of the Bible studies is crafted especially for men, and provides biblical answers, discussion questions, and character-building insights from the life of Super Bowl XLI Winning Head Coach Tony Dungy. We’ll delve into questions like: What is my game plan? What is my strength?  What is success? Where is my security?  What is my significance? What is my legacy?

Sacred Rhythms for Women 3rd Sunday of the month at 4:30pm.  Women seeking to live into spiritual disciplines like prayer, study, confession and simplicity meet monthly to discuss readings and encourage one another.  Spiritual Classics: Selected Readings on the Twelve Spiritual Disciplines is their current text. Generally the group meets at the church on the third Sunday of the month.
