  • Disciple iv Bible study

    Sundays following worship

    Disciple IV, Under the Tree of Life, bible study concentrates on Old Testament Writings, the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, James, Jude, and finally, Revelation. Emphasis on the Psalms as Israel’s hymnbook and prayer book leads naturally to an emphasis on worship in the study. If you are interested in this rewarding, 32-week bible study, contact Pastor Jonathan.

    Second Blessing is an opportunity for adult participants to enjoy a short-term DVD and book study which can enhance their church experience and add another level of understanding to their faith journey. We draw from popular authors such as Adam Hamilton and Max Lucado, and present programs in the fall, at Advent, and during the season of Lent. Look for current notices in the weekly e-news and bulletin. Contact Iva at or Ron Smith at for more information. 

  • Home Groups

    Home Groups are a unique opportunity to have a closer relationship with members of your church family whether through book discussions, speakers, service or the design of your groups choice. Our church currently has three home groups  and there are always opportunities to start your own.
