adult Ministries

Christian learning is life-long and grounded in God's Word.  

Below are the many ways our adults engage in Christian Learning, with God, and with one another.

  • Sermon based studies for connect groups

    Sermon based studies take a break during the summer months...if youR group continues to meet over the summer, please use the Questions below to guide your discussion.

    The following are always good questions to ask as you move deeper into any Bible Study. 

    1. What stands out in this passage? Anything you noticed for the first time or came to understand in a new way?
    2. What questions do you have? Anything confusing or troubling?
    3. What does this passage say about God's character or his love and promise for us?
    4. How can this passage be applied to my relationship with God? My life? My relationship with others?

  • GriefShare

    GriefShare is a grief recovery program to help with the loss of a loved one. If you or someone you know has lost a loved one, this may be the group for you. Please contact Jennifer Finnerty (GriefShare Coordinator) at with questions. 

  • Spiritual Vitality

    Spiritual Vitality is a characteristic of possessing a living faith; it's how we thrive amidst life's ups and downs. The goal of Spiritual Vitality is to help you become a vital and whole human being created in the image of God. In addition to Spiritual Direction and Vitality practices, Vitality Groups (GriefShare, DivorceCare, The Ultimate Journey) seek to help you heal spiritually and bring you closer to God.
