Start the New Year with a small group experience. 
JOIN A GRACE GROUP—new groups are starting soon.
These groups start with a five-week study of The Class Meeting:  Reclaiming a Forgotten (and Essential) Small Group Experience, by Kevin M. Watson.
Grace Groups provide a place for people to talk to others who want to grow closer to God about what is happening in their life with God.  They help people become more aware of what is going on in their own lives as Christians, reminding them that being a Christian should make a meaningful difference in their lives.  After the initial five-week study the group members decide if they want to continue to meet as an ongoing Grace Group.

Three new Grace Group opportunities:
Tuesday Evenings: 6:30 – 8:00pm
Jan 26 – Feb 23
Leader: Shawn Foreman

Wednesday Evenings: 7:30 – 9:00pm
Jan 27 – Feb 24
Leader: Dr. David Graham

Thursday Mornings: 9:00 – 10:30am
Jan 28 – Feb 25
Leader: Shawn Foreman

  • To register contact Shawn Foreman at
