SUNDAY Morning, Afternoon & Evening:

Making "Community Connections" through Prayer:  This group meets 7:30-7:55AM every Sunday in the Conference Room. You are invited to drop in any Sunday and pray silently or from a prayer guide. Consider coming next will be so welcomed! God is powerful and mighty. He asks that we come to Him with our requests. FYI all who worship and all who serve in worship service are prayed for as well.  - Pre-service Prayer Group


Lessons of the Day:  Every Sunday morning join John Schinnerer at 9:30AM in the Library. This study highlights the readings/lesson of the day.  *Times may change in July due to our July worship schedule. Please check with Mr. Schinnerer for the July schedule. 


GriefShare Update:  We will be starting another session of our GriefShare support group on Sunday, August 18 in the Multipurpose Room, #215 from 1:00PM – 2:30PM. Please be reminded that GriefShare is a 13 week DVD/discussion based class for those who are experiencing the grief of losing a loved one, or some other major loss in one’s life. Should you know of any individuals who might benefit from a support group of this nature, please pass the word to them, or let me know as I send out postcards of invitation. Thanks in advance for keeping this ministry in your prayers! I am blessed to be able to serve this group as a leader. - Karl Fink ( )





Men's Morning Bible Study: We meet from 6:30-7:30AM in the Parish Lounge.  *If you need to leave earlier for work, no problem! We‘re always looking for new men to join us, so as your schedule allows consider meeting with us as we study God‘s Good Word, fellowship, & pray together.  - Karl Fink (


Women's Thursday Morning Bible Study:   All women are invited to attend. We meet each Thursday, 9:30-11:00AM on our campus.  This could be a wonderful opportunity for you to grow in Christ and make new friends. If you have any questions, feel free to call Meg Velez (through the church office). 

  • We are currently on a summer break. Our fall start up date will be announced later this summer. 




Men’s Breakfast/Bible Study:  Our once-a-month Saturday group continues to grow steadily, thanks to the gracious goodness of our Heavenly Father! We do still have plenty of room for YOU, so please consider joining us on Saturday, August 17, 8:00 to 9:30AM in the Conference Room. We enjoy a meal prepared by a combination of our members from about 8 to 8:30, and then do our study until 9:25AM or so. You are welcome to join us at any point during the 90 minutes we are here! We are currently studying the book of Romans, so bring your Bible and I will give you a study guide if you need one. We meet monthly on the 3rd Saturday of each month.





 Other Study Opportunities:
