LYFE Groups Pic
July 1 - August 19, 2019

Mondays - 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the Christensen room

In conjunction with the Summer 2019 sermon series, "Faith Questions From the Next Generation" are two small group opportunities - LYFE (Living Your Faith Everyday) groups.

We will discuss Sunday's Faith Question and how it relates to everyday life. 

No sign-up needed – simply show up. Bring your Bible, coffee, snacks, soda, etc. 





The Men’s Bible Study group meets Wednesday mornings at 7:30 a.m. We are studying ACTS. Join us for this one-hour mid-week boost and share great fellowship with brothers. And no homework!

Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study 

This summer, the Sunday Adult Class will learn to develop a clearer understanding as to why our relationship with God through Christ is expressed as a covenant. Let's face it: human beings have a dismal "credit rating" with God!

During the summer the Adult Sunday Class will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 9:30 a.m. so that everyone will have time to socialize before the start of the Sunday worship hour. Come and enjoy the amazing Bible discussion and fellowship time with good friends – there is a seat reserved just for YOU!

Grace and Peace, Carol Dacquisto, Larry Dacquisto and Rosie Nicholas

New Youth Director Announced

Welcome, Morgan Smith!

We are pleased to announce that we have hired a new youth director, Morgan Smith (no relation to Adam!). Morgan most recently served Bay Presbyterian Church in Ohio as the Associate Director of Student Ministries. Over the course of telephone conversations as well as an onsite interview (where Morgan led both our middle school and high school groups), the search committee became convinced of Morgan’s call and passion to serve students and families.
