Throughout the year, special interest groups are offered. Some will meet on Sunday mornings, and others will meet during the week. We are always happy to hear your thoughts about topics, studies, etc. that would interest you and help you grow in your faith. Contact Pastor Jana if you have ideas to share.

A disciple actively and intentionally follows in the footsteps of Jesus, offering his or her life back to God.  A disciple orders his or her life in ways that embody Christ's ministry of love and forgiveness in families, personal relationships, workplaces, communities, and the world and seeks to grow in Christ-likeness through the experiences of praying, studying the Bible, worshiping, serving, making disciples through witness, and giving generously.
