Bible Study and Community Groups

Throughout the year, there are times of corporate meeting in the sanctuary on Wednesday evenings, and seasons of smaller group meetings in our homes we call Community Groups.

Wednesday evening Bible Study begins at 7 PM and is based on worshipping the Lord through God’s Word and corporate prayer.

Community Groups help draw us closer together relationally, while we also focus on discipleship and answering the difficult questions of life with a biblical worldview.

At 6 PM on Sunday evenings, Sunday school classes offer age-appropriate ways for believers and their kids to grow.

Meets at 6 PM on Sunday evenings. This time is specifically designed for youth to draw closer to God, each other, and to specifically deal with issues teens face in today’s world.

We endeavor to live out the following values in a gracious, nurturing community.

  • Biblical Authority – We acknowledge the Word of God as our final authority for doctrine and practice.
  • Authentic Worship – We seek to glorify God by whole-heartedly exalting His supreme worth in corporate and personal worship.
  • Scriptural Holiness – We believe that God calls every believer to holiness that rises out of His character. We understand it to begin in the new birth, include a second work of grace that empowers, purifies and fills each person with the Holy Spirit, and continue in a lifelong pursuit.
  • Holy Living – We believe that God calls all believers to a life of holiness, and that His Spirit enables us in this pursuit through union with Christ.
