Adult Ministries

Adult Ministries

small group ministry

to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.Ephesians 4:12-13 ESV

Following the pattern of these verses, our goal in adult ministries is to help folks take the next step in their walk with the Lord, and to prepare them to help others do the same. Whether someone is giving serious thought to their relationship with God for the first time, or is growing in their faith and wanting to learn and serve more, or is looking for new ways to maximize their later years for eternal impact, we want to point you to what God has to say in his Word and equip you to live it out in the home, at the workplace, and in the world.

As you explore the opportunities available, you’ll see that some ministries are life-stage and other involve mixed groups. All of them are designed to grow in and live out the Christian faith in community with others who are walking the same road, sharing similar struggles and questions, growing together into Christ-like maturity, for God’s glory.
