Come to the Table – Bel Jackson – This will be a cooking class/ traditional home group. We will have 8 cooking classes with dishes from all over the world with worship and the other 4 weeks will be a traditional home group meeting where we break bread together. If you enjoy food, worship, and fellowship this home group is for you.


Traditional Home Group – Raymond & Teresa McDonald – Join us for a traditional home group! We’ll have worship, discussion, and ministry time each week.


Everyone Gets To Pray – Run/Walking With The Spirit – Stephen Goodrich – Begin the new year with the resolve to renew your body as a healthy temple for the Spirit through exercise, eating healthier, and integrating the power of prayer in both! You will learn a new run/walking training program over this 10-week course that will renew and encourage your health, strength, self-confidence and prayer life with the Spirit aiming for the rewarding completion of the B52 Miles For Meals 5K run/walk on March 25!  We’ll meet at the church or Candy Cane Park on Wednesdays and have optional Thursday and Saturday training meetups as well.

Spiritual Disciplines – Brian Fox, Bobby & Tina McDonald – Have you contemplated turning over a new leaf for the New Year? Why not start with an exploration of taking care of your soul? A Celebration of Discipline is a timeless book by Richard Foster exploring age-old simple practices that care for the mind, body and soul. This book will be the text for our Growth Group. Let’s turn over a new leaf together!


Get Used To Different – Watching the Chosen Season 3 – Bonnie & Stephen Goodrich – Come join us for a night of fellowship as we watch, enjoy, share and discuss this wonderful interpretation of Jesus’ Ministry. The Chosen is the first-ever multi-season TV show about the life of Jesus. Created outside of the Hollywood system, The Chosen allows us to see Him through the eyes of those who knew Him. No matter where you are in your journey with Jesus Christ, this TV show is for you.

John Wimber’s Signs, Wonders, and Church Growth – Raymond McDonald – We will be watching videos of John’s teaching followed by practical sessions of Holy Spirit ministry, where we will learn and practice the Vineyard model of prayer. Come with the expectation that God will move in power and be willing to see what happens when you risk and step out in faith.


YogaFaith – Yoga on Saturday mornings – Cathey Miller – Please join us for yoga outside on the basketball court on Saturday mornings. Our teacher, Chris Disser, is trained in YogaFaith.  It is a wonderful practice combining yoga with worship and prayer.
