Mom's Ministry

Moms looking to connect and grow in your faith? In just a few weeks we begin an exciting year of providing support for moms of all ages and stages through an intentional time of study, conversation, and building relationships within the community. We will dive into a new curriculum and look forward to gathering together on Wednesday mornings from 9:15-11:15 beginning September 16th and running through May 18.

This year we are introducing two separate tracks. Track one will include a study of Michelle Anthony’s book and video teachings “Spiritual Parenting,” coupled with local speakers and weekly small group time. 

Track two is for moms who are eager to study a book together related to parenting or marriage or to the group's interest. Both tracks will be lead by moms who are also walking the journey of parenting, but are further along that road.

Discipled childcare is provided for children up to age 5. Click here to sign up and join us on this exciting opportunity for discipleship and fellowship. Please contact Michelle ( ) with any questions.









Sermon Resources

Summers are a time when many groups take a break as schedules get busy with summer travel. With this in mind starting this Sunday, June 7th through August, the Sermon Questions team will be on a break as well. If you have any questions about resources to use over the summer for your small group, please email Abby,  .

If your group will be meeting over the summer and is open to hosting new members who are looking to connect to a small group, we'd love to help! Please email Abby.





Worship services

The Line of David

Services: 9:15am & 11:00am

The world gravitates toward the big and the beautiful but God often chooses those whom the world passes over. God chose a boy- a young shepherd - and placed him on the throne. What did God see that the world did not? What might God look for in us that, like David, we might be called people after God's own heart?

Sundays for kids and youth
