When it comes to growing in our faith, the Bible is pretty clear that church was meant to be experienced with other people. We are “spiritually formed” in community. It’s healthy for us.
And while our one-hour-a-week worship services can be helpful, they’re still not a very good way to get to know others or to “do life” together. That’s why we encourage everyone to get into a LifeGroup.
Each group lasts for about 10-12 weeks. They typically meet in homes. Kids are welcome. Food is always there. And there are opportunities for practical Bible study, prayer, serving projects and just “hanging out”.
Date: Sunday, Oct 1 - Sunday, Dec 3. While most meet on Sundays, they're not bound to those days.
Time: Times are decided by group. Many of them meet from 5 - 7 pm on Sundays. Some meet for lunch on Sundays after worship. (See the sign-up page for more details).
Topic/Theme: The groups will use a study guide based on that week's sermon. While the bible discussion time is important, the study guide is merely a "guide". The group times may include prayer, eating, just "hangin' out", an occasional serving project or maybe a family recreational activity at a different time.
After attending Alpha, you will gain a better understanding of what the Christian faith is all about and you'll be more equipped to have faith conversations with your friends and family who may have questions.Wednesday nights, 6:30 - 7:45 pm.
Financial Peace University (Wednesdays)
Learn the money management principles from financial expert and author Dave Ramsey. This is a DVD-based class. Wednesday nights, 6:30 - 7:45 pm.
The Prayer Gathering (Wednesdays nights)
This group gathers on a weekly basis with a very simple agenda: To Pray. With a few classic hymns to sing and a brief scripture reading, the main focus is "praying through" the LifeChange weekly prayer list, as well as for the ministries and influence of LifeChange. Come experience the power of God, each week! (BTW, praying aloud is never required or forced here!)
When: Wednesday nights, all year
Time: 6:45 - 7:45 pm
Led by: Wes Schuel
Location: Main building, Conference room near the offices.

When: 2nd Tuesday of each month
Time: 12 noon- 1:30 pm
