Adult Discipleship Every season offers unique opportunities for people to grow and expand their knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ. We encourage you to find a place to connect with a group in your season of life. Below are our core discipleship opportunities. Pastor Jared can help you find the right programs for you and your family. 

Foundational Classes Our instructor-led classes to foster growth, knowledge and your relationship with Christ run periodically as need arises.

Anchor Groups Our connected, small groups which meet on a regular basis for extended periods of time cover material that is topical and based on the desires of the group. Groups meet at both the homes and the church and vary in times.

Healing Ministries Our specific classes to foster healing through crisis and loss. Most of these classes run in conjunction with the school calendar. These classes typically include support material for special life situations such divorce, grief, and cancer.

Retreats We offer opportunities for people to remove themselves from the stresses of everyday life and get together for spiritual growth. Some yearly retreats include the Women’s Retreat, Walk to Emmaus and the Marriage Retreat.


Social Small Groups Ongoing opportunities to connect with people of similar interests. These are a great way to experience fellowship and connection with other followers of Jesus Christ.
