SMALL GROUPS

Small groups offer deepening relationships with God and one another, opportunities to share need and pray together, open doors to service and spiritual growth. Most of our Sunday School classes (meeting at 9 a.m. on Sunday mornings) offer these dynamics and all of them welcome new participants. In addition, small groups related to grief recovery, Alzheimers' support, divorce care, and divorce care for kids meet regularly. To learn more, please contact Pastor Carma Wood.

WOMEN’S MINISTRY

At our church, we share stories, build relationships, experience grace, and celebrate friendship. Events are planned to engage women of all ages to develop experiences spiritually, socially, and emotionally in community. Lunches, sharing skills and creativity, retreats and living life with God are all part of the interactions that happen with women. Some events include daughters and younger girls and there are other times child care is provided. See our calendar of events for:

WORSHIP ARTS

When we allow music, writing, painting, dance, photography, drama . . . all art forms to engage honest seekers in a relationship with God, the un-capturable character of the Creator is somehow more fully known, and, we hope, is more fully lived.
