Adult Ministries

Community is often the best place for spiritual growth. Through small group relationships with people from many different backgrounds, experiences and understandings, we can come together, challenge one another, and enrich each other’s lives.

As a church community, we often meet for events, bible studies, retreats, to meet needs in the community, and sometimes just to spend time together. Most of our groups are open to everyone, but we also offer separate Men’s and Women’s ministries to allow a space for conversations and support for some of the unique challenges that we all face.

Thursday Bible Study

A conversational study lead by Pastor Kyle, which meets every Thursday at 11:00am. We are currently traveling through the Gospel of Luke.

Monday Morning Small Group for Women

 Join us Monday mornings from  9:30-11:00 a.m. for friendship and great conversation.​ Our next book, ​Beauty Marks ​will begin September 11th.  Beauty Marks ​is a healing journey that will ease your pain by transforming the places where you hurt the most into powerful stories of victory. Scars are evidence that you’ve been wounded. Beauty marks are evidence that you are being healed. In one second, Linda Barrick’s life changed forever when a drunk driver slammed into her family’s van, nearly killing her daughter and leaving Linda, her husband, and their son critically injured. In Beauty Marks, Linda draws on her remarkable story of healing to lead us on a journey of emotional, physical, and spiritual restoration. Perhaps you have experienced shattered dreams and emotional pain. You may feel hopeless, discouraged, or distant from God. Some of your scars may be visible, while others are hidden deep in your heart. You may wonder, Does my pain have any purpose? Is my story too ugly to redeem? Beauty Marks shows you how to​, ​eliminate shame and gain assurance;​ ​improve the way you feel physically; and​ ​discover the purpose for your pain.God wants to use your story in greater ways than you ever imagined. Come along and allow Him to transform your scars into beautiful marks of victory.

The Sisters of Saron, or SOS, is open to women of all ages. We meet on the last Sunday of every month at 6:00 p.m. We enjoy coming together for special events, bible studies, prayer, good food, crafts, retreats, and special activities.

Currently, we are studying Living Life Together by Shauna Niequist. Each session stands alone, so please join us anytime!

The Men of Saron meet every last Sunday of every month, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. There's good conversation, a bit of ribbing, sometimes food, but always support and getting into real concerns, struggles and the victories of life in Christ.  They get into scripture and/or topical discussions.  There is lots of room for questions.  In fact, most of the time when someone asks a question that they think is dumb or think they might be the only one that doesn't know the answer, others in the group are saying, "I am so glad someone asked that.  I was wondering the same thing!"  The men reinforce each other in their sometimes unique roles as fathers, brother or sons and support each other through prayer and a safe place to be heard.  (What is shared in Men's Group stays in the Men's Group.)

The Men of Saron also periodically take on service projects to help people in need, regularly get together with men from other congregations and occasionally put on a fine fund-raising breakfast for a variety of worthy causes.
