Young Adult Small Group
Facilitators: Dianne King, Bev Parris 
Where: Fellowship Hall
When: Sundays, 10-11 am
Description:We are a group of young adults (college-age – 35ish) seeking to grow in our faith journey together. We aren’t afraid to ask questions, engage in deep conversation, and embrace people of different opinions. Our focus is to create a community where young adults feel a sense of community and belonging while moving deeper in their relationship with God.
 
Congregational Care Small Group
Facilitators: Glenn Banning
Where: Osborne Room
When: Not meeting at this time
Description: Do you have a heart for caring? Do you want to reach out to people in need? Then, come join us! Our goal for this group is to grow together by loving those in our church and community. We feel strongly that our church is a family, and so we want to be there to support our brothers and sisters in Christ through life’s challenges. This group will engage in the work of reaching out (cards, visits, phone calls) and praying for those in need. We want people with a variety of gifts to join us in this ministry! If you have a heart for prayer but visiting feels daunting – no problem! If you have horrible handwriting but enjoy making an encouraging phone call – we want you! Regardless of where you’re at – we want to help each other grow in being a reflection of Christ in the world.
