March – April 2020:  All Bible Studies are suspended due to the COVID-19 safety guidelines.


Men’s Group:

Pastor Dave is forming a men’s group based on the Methodist class meeting process.  This group will meet on Tuesday night at 7pm starting on September 3.  The class meeting was the backbone of Methodism because of focused on growing in discipleship.  Christian conferencing was considered a means of grace by John Wesley.  This group is designed for men to be relational, intentional and accountable.  The hope is that disciples will grow in relationship with God and each other through building a sense of trust and belonging.  Men, consider whether this type of group might be your next step to grow closer to God through Jesus.  Contact Pastor Dave  or call the office if you are interested.
