Gods Good Life
This class is a group of senior adults who enjoy an inter-active, caring fellowship. The teaching is scripturally-based with an emphasis on what the Bible is saying to us today in our season of life. We share a weekly Prayer List, have a special interest in missions, and enjoy a special connection with each member. Several times throughout the year, we share a meal together after morning worship. The meal may be covered dish, catered to the church, or held at a local restaurant.

Women By the Well
For women of all ages and marital status
Women by the Well is a sisterhood of all ages and marital status— young, old, married, divorced, widowed, single, etc. The story of the Samaritan woman in John 4 is every woman’s story today—a woman’s thirst for wholeness. Jesus is calling women today to come and lay down our empty water pots and let Him fill our life with pure, refreshing and everlasting water! Come thirsty . . . leave refreshed!
This class has adults aged 30 through Seniors. Topics are Word-based and varied, but manifesting the Kingdom of God on earth according to Jesus’ model. “The same things I do you shall do also” Jesus – John 14:12. Worship, prayer, intercession, and the gifts of the Spirit are taught as a lifestyle.
Single Adults/Men & Women
