FaithWalking is an opportunity for men 40 and younger to gather and grow their faith and love for God through fellowship, small group Bible study, fellowship activities, and service activities. The foundation of the group happens each Wednesday morning where we journey together through a Bible study in association with a light breakfast and coffee. Periodically the group will meet outside of church for fellowship activities and also to help give back by doing acts of service at the church and in the community.

Circle of the Word

Tuesday, 6:30-8:30 pm/Homes 
Dates: Ongoing
Frequency: 3rd Tuesday of the month
For: Women
Childcare: No

Circle of the Word is a small group of women who want to grow spiritually and support others in their spiritual growth. This fall we are reading and discussing The Jesus Prescription for a Healthy Life by Leonard Sweet. New members are welcome!

Leonard Sweet, with his profound insight and humor examines how Jesus laughed, hung out with friends, played with children, walked, enjoyed the good times at social gatherings, and poked fun at pious pretensions. By examining the life of Jesus, this prescription for health and well-being details the ways and habits through which Jesus lived a disciplined life and healthy existence during his ministry among us. …You are sure to sharpen spiritually and hone your life physically while learning things about Jesus that you have never heard before.
