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 reading the letters of Peter.

Go Fish Adult Study

Fishing stories. We've all heard them. "It was this big." "You should have seen the one that got away." People love to tell stories of their fishing adventures. When it comes to faith, however, most people clam up. Why is it we can't talk about what God has done in our lives as naturally as we can spin fishing tales?  In this six-part video study, Andy Stanley explores the motivation behind sharing your faith and how it can become a natural part of your life.  Led by Mary Niklaus.

Monday Morning Women's Book Study

New study beginning for women Monday, October 23rd from 9:30-11:00am. Participants will encounter a 15th-century religious reformer from Germany who broke ranks with the Catholic Church. This Bible study is the first of a three-part series devoted to Martin Luther -- a monk whose Spirit-inspired grasp of God's justification of sinners through faith in the Savior was the cornerstone of the Protestant Reformation.

Sisters of Saron

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 Keeping Place by Jen Pollock Michel. Each session stands alone, so please join us anytime!

Men of Saron

The Men of Saron meet the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.  There's good conversation, a bit of ribbing, snacks, support and getting into real concerns, struggles and the victories of life in Christ.  They get into scriptural and/or topical discussions.  There is lots of room for questions.  The men reinforce each other in their sometimes unique roles as fathers, brothers or sons and support each other through prayer and having a safe place to be heard.

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.

Currently studying a book in the Bible called "Titus".  Titus challenges us to display the gospel in our lives through doing good. We do good works not to earn God’s favor, but as a result of God’s favor. When the gospel has truly taken root in our lives, it produces the fruit of godliness. As we pass these things on to future generations, the Church stands in bright contrast to the darkness of the world.
