BYKOTA Adult Sunday School


The BYKOTA (Be Ye Kind, One to Another) Adult Sunday School is facilitated by Carol Dezur, following the Traditional Worship Service. 


Truth-filled Bible Study

Facilitated by Lanae Shields, this Bible Study will meet Wednesdays, starting June 1st, at 5:30pm in Room 102.

We will be studying the book, "Truthfilled" by Ruth Chou Simons.

In this study, based on the Book of Colossians, leads us through a practice of preaching gospel truth to ourselves by studying Paul’s example. In every changing season of life, we can rest in God’s character, rehearse our identity in Christ, respond in faith, and remember God’s provision for us. In today’s culture, there’s no shortage of self help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill you up and satisfy you fully.

Please join us Wednesdays at 5:30pm in Room 102 at the church!


Care + Support

Healing Hearts

Coordinated by Brian Hoxie and Laurie Andrews, Hopeful Hearts is a grief group which began in 2020 to support those within our congregation and community grieving the loss of a loved one(s).  Using book study, prayer and compassion, we support each other through the numerous stages of grief.  This group understands and supports each other through good times, through difficult times, and everything in between. We are a safe, confidential group. You don’t have to wait for an invitation and you don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. Our group is open to all that have suffered a loss.
The Hopeful Hearts group meets at 11:00am the first Wednesday of every month in Room 109 of the lower level of the church.​

Aging with Grace

Aging with Grace begins a new study, Thursday, March 31st. We will delve into a study of I Timothy.  This is a small group Bible Study for seniors (ages 60+),  facilitated by Reverend Barry Sweet. This group meets every Thursday, from 2:30pm-4:00pm in the Fellowship Hall of the church. New members are welcome to join our group! 
Seniors in their ‘golden years’ face bodies that no longer want to move as quickly as they once moved and backs and knees that creak and groan.  They may encounter lonely feelings as their families are grown and relocated.  They have faced the loss of parents and many loved ones.  They have entered the last third of their lives.  Here’s the good news; we still have the wisdom that comes from living long-full lives! We have the time, energy, and desire to serve the Lord and our church. 

Join us as we share together how we can best serve and use our God given gifts while aging with Grace.  We guarantee laughs, perhaps a tear and there will always be food. 
Meetings are every Thursday from 2:30pm-4:00pm in the church Fellowship Hall.

Cheerful Seniors

Fellowship + Connection

Holiday House Crafts

This group is for anyone who enjoys fellowship while completing art and craft projects. Each person brings and works on their own projects. Our members paint, knit, crochet, do needlework, sew and much more. We share and teach each other our skills.  All of the crafts we make are donated to the UMW Holiday House and UMW Alpenfest luncheons craft table. No need to commit to being present every week, just as your schedule allows. All are welcome; come check us out.
The Holiday House Craft Group meets every Tuesday, 9:30am-Noon in Room 109 downstairs in the church.​


Pinochle Social Group

These gatherings will include a devotion time using the Upper Room followed by social time including a hardy game of Pinochle.  If you love to play Pinochle, want to meet some new friends and spend time studying God’s word together, this is your group.  


Painting Class

Join us every Saturday at 9:00am in the Fellowship Hall. Have you ever wanted to try your hand at painting but didn't know where to start? Well, our very own Claudia Chambers has stepped up to facilitate a painting class right here in one of our church classrooms! You don't have to have any experience to join, but even if you are a painter, we're certain you'll enjoy the experience and maybe learn something new in the process.
Claudia is going to introduce us to watercolors this Winter. She will provide class supplies and the price of each class will include the cost per person for supplies. 
Sign up soon to assure a place in this exciting class!


The Diner's Club

This group will be arranged with three to four couples or families paired for 4 months, enjoying monthly dinner and fellowship, rotating to each of the families’ homes (or location of your choice.) At the end of the four months, you would be shifted to a new set of three or four families. Families that wish to include children for bonding with other church families with children will be paired. 

Couples, singles, all adults will be grouped together. Members can request the family group, the all-adults’ group or either group.
The Diner’s Club is an opportunity to meet in the comfort of homes, break bread together, enjoy the fellowship of other Christians. Getting to know acquaintances better, meeting new friends, learning about their families and their lives offers the opportunity to make and enrich life-long friendships. 
Each group of families will decide their calendar and dining locations.
