Small Groups

There are many opportunities to fellowship with small groups of people outside of the usual Sunday School time. There are year-round groups and short-term classes for you to join.

Ignite Course

Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:00pm led by Brant Butler

Course begins Sept 9 through Nov. 11.  Meeting upstairs in room 211 (conference room)

Do you want to do more to engage with people outside the church, but are not sure how? Do you want to feel more comfortable about sharing your faith with others?  Perhaps you’ve seen or felt some need in the community that the church isn’t currently meeting. There may even be a ministry idea tugging at that warm heart of yours – would you like to see it catch fire?

If any of this is true, then ignite is for you.  In this course we will read and discuss some inspiring books on faith sharing, on culture, and on new expressions of the Christian faith.  more importantly, we will work together to incorporate what we are reading and discussing and spark new projects or ministries to engage our community outside the church.
