We exist to connect people together in significant relationships, to become more Christ-like, help others come to faith in Christ, and glorify God through service to His Church.
We are an informal group of adults, most with children, coming together to study contemporary topics facing Christians, Methodists, and parents. We are focused on connecting with each other through in-depth conversation.
We are focused on growing closer to God and connecting with one another. We get closer to God through Bible study, accountability, fellowship, and participation in church life. We are growing families investing in community life. We know life can be difficult, so we focus on supporting one another and building relationships.
We study the word of God and incorporate that word into our lives while having meaningful fellowship throughout the year.
Our mission is service, fellowship, and learning. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we aim to know God and share God’s saving love through Christ.
Our mission is to: strengthen our relationship with God, apply the Word of God to daily living and share our love of Christ with others.
We strive to grow closer to God through a variety of studies from various authors. Our class is focused on an open discussion.
