In small groups of people seeking to explore spirituality and faith in a way that calls us, we go deep.  Here are our small group ministries in addition to our youth groups, mission trips, and confirmation class.  We are always open to starting new ones!  To contact any of our small groups, please use the form at the bottom of the page.  View upcoming Small Group events.

Bake & Freeze Ministry – Established as a way to supplement the efforts of Fellowship in providing meals to “Our Pilgrims”.  It was challenging to get meals on short notice to those in need, so having prepared frozen meals at the ready alleviates that challenge.

Chancel Choir – Leads and supports the congregation in the singing of hymns and musical responses and provides choral anthems and/or solos within the Sunday morning service.

Jr. High Youth Group – A safe place for 6th, 7th and 8th graders to meet every Sunday morning to examine their faith by learning about the basics of Christianity.  It is a place to voice their opinions about current issues, while they continue to wrestle with dramatic changes in their hearts, minds and bodies during and through adolescence.

Kononia – Meeting weekly as a nurturing and faithful community, sharing our inner spiritual journey and exploring ways to more fully experience a deeper awareness of God’s presence in our lives.  Because sharing groups can only function well with a limit number of members, it has been necessary to limit the group to the current membership.  Any wishing to form a similar small group may contact Reid Roberts, and every effort will be made to assist you.
