The Church, in the heart of the Green Meadows West neighborhood, will provide a meal at no charge each week at  6 pm, followed by activities from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.  Daycare for infants and toddlers will be available. In addition, walk-ons are welcome at the 7:30 pm choir practice.

Youth Group (sixth grade through 12th grade)

This fall’s programming kicks off with a four-week series called “The Big Questions,” which explores identity, belonging and purpose. 


Adult Bible Study

Facilitated by Pastors Jim and Deb Harkness, this interactive study kicks off with a focus on the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John.  On September 22, we will talk together about the feeding of the five thousand (John 6:1-15).  On September 29, we will dig into the passage which records our Lord’s walking on the water (John 6:16-24.)  Then, on October 6, we will discuss what Jesus is telling us when He says, “I am the bread of life.”  That great “I Am” statement in found in John 6:25 and following.  Watch here for more details on the Adult Bible study schedule through December 2021.


Choir Practice

Under the direction of Colby Gochanour, the adult choir practices at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Walk-ons are welcome.
