Don’t Give the Enemy A Seat At Your Table

 This study unpacks Psalm 23 to offer insight into how to overcome the enemy’s lies and find peace and spiritual security in any circumstance or situation.

Tuesday Prayer Group

This prayer group is open to ALL! Mason Buckingham leads a prayer group which meets weekly, every Tuesday at 12:15pm in Narthex (the hallway next to the Sanctuary). 
The purpose of this group is to gather at the church to lift the needs and concerns that people have. We invite you to come and fellowship with us. When we gather, we certainly pray for each other and the needs within our church family, but we also pray for those who have experienced disasters, conflicts around the world, and for leaders within the church and in our world. 
Respect for each other is a core understanding with-in the group.

We do not require that any person within the group must pray aloud. Their presence among us is enough to encourage us in an attitude of prayer. It is open to all who wish to attend. Join Mason and others Wednesdays - an exciting opportunity to serve Christ and your church family!

Care and Support

Care + Support

Healing Hearts

Coordinated by Brian Hoxie and Laurie Andrews, Healing 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 Healing Hearts group meets at 2:00pm the first Monday of every month in the Church Library of the lower level of the church.​

Aging with Grace

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.  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

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.
