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.

Monday Morning Women's Book Study

Join us Monday mornings from 9:30-11:00 for friendship and great conversation!  We have begun BASIC Series  by Francis Chan. It will challenge us to reclaim the simple, full, and beautiful journey of the church that is described in Scripture. In these films, Chan asks the questions many are wondering about: What is church? Who is it for? Is it broken? Can it be better? Volunteer childcare is available upon request. Contact Molly Schroeder at or 763-263-2209 to sign up!
