Groups are a place where we can strengthen our faith, help each other through life, and make a real impact on our communities. Groups create an environment for you to connect in a meaningful way with others while getting to know God better. We have a few ways for you to get connected:
Power & Love Experience
John Donne wrote, “No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main…”
The apostle Paul wrote, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a part of it.”
One of my assignments as Director of Discipleship is to help everyone be and feel connected to Jesus and His body the church. That’s a BIG assignment!
Paul is right, of course. We believe his words were inspired by God. But practically speaking, how do we live that out? If we’re really honest, we have to admit that often we like to keep to ourselves. It’s very easy to attend church on the weekend and never really connect with another person. No one really knows us. We don’t really know anyone else. It’s comfortable to fly under the radar and stay on our little island.
But maybe, just maybe, you realize you’re missing something. If so, I’d like to invite you to the Power & Love Experience starting Thursday, March 5, from 6:30-8:00 pm. You’ll sit at a table with others who want to be connected with Jesus’ body, the church. We’ll enjoy a light meal, inspirational stories, fun conversation and the chance to connect with others. The Experience will run each Thursday for six weeks. You’ll sit at the same table each night and get to build some new friendships.
Want to get off your island? Do you want to experience more of God’s power and love in your life? If you are interested, fill out the "Join a New Group" form below.
Prayer is really about having a close, connected relationship and conversation with God. Out of that flows the ability to help others as we speak to them. We are currently building teams to pray for others after our worship services and Tuesday nights during Stepping Forward. If you would like to be a part of a team or receive mentoring let us know. You don’t need to have any previous experience, just a desire to learn and be used by God! Prayer trainings are offered every Tuesday evening from 6-7 pm. Questions? Contact Duane Davis at
