August 15th - December 19th, 2017
This is a group which consists of single and married ladies only. We meet at my home for food and fellowship and a Bible study every Tuesday night.

Sometimes, we also meet outside of this group on Sunday after church to eat and have more fellowship. I feel that there is a passion for Christ in each of these single and married ladies and want to provide them with a place to share. I am very passionate about this group and hope your added passion will ignite a fire!

Greater Works Shall We Do - Small Group - Charlotte Fawver - Everyone Welcome
August 30th - November 29th, 2017
Do you long to see the miracles again that we read about in God’s Holy Word. When you see the sick and broken, don’t you desire for them to be healed and made whole through the power of the Name of Jesus?
Jesus said in John 14:12, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
These Words of Jesus are Truth.
Let us approach the Word of God exploring by the leading of the Holy Spirit in how to walk in these greater works. Certainly, Jesus ministered in the miraculous. Is this something that the church should be walking in too? The answer is “yes”.
Come with us and see.

Parenting a New Generation - Small Group - Pastors John & Jeremy Unthank - Everyone Welcome
August 30th - November 29th, 2017
A Tool for Parents and Student Pastors to Understand and Lead Today's Students
The world is changing, and so are today's teens. Any parents who feels unequipped to raise a teenager in today's world, and any student pastor who has ever felt overwhelmed with the alarming statistics, both know parenting and leading this generation can be challenging.
Both need help. Both need a plan. Both need each other. In this study, Chap Clark (Ph.d) articulates the problem with humor and fresh insight in a way you have never heard, and gives practical solutions that will change how you relate to this generation. Whether you work with teenagers or live with them, this DVD-based study will encourage you, challenge you and better equip you to raise healthy adults in today's world-something that is not only possible, but within your reach.
Guardrails - Small Group - Stan & Nancy Pippin - Everyone Welcome
August 30th - November 29th, 2017
[Guardrails: a system designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas.]
They're everywhere, but they don't really get much attention . . . until somebody hits one. And then, more often than not, it is a lifesaver. Ever wonder what it would be like to have guardrails in other areas of your life—areas where culture baits you to the edge of disaster and then chastises you when you step across the line? Your friendships. Your finances. Your marriage.
Maybe your greatest regret could have been avoided if you had established guardrails. In this study, Andy Stanley will challenge us to stop flirting with disaster and establish some personal guardrails.
Teach us to Want & Perfect Love - Small Group - Kenya Stafford - Women's Group
August 30th - November 29th, 2017
THIS IS A LADIES ONLY BIBLE STUDY
We all want things: certain relationships, just the right job, affirmation from others, a life full of passion and purpose. Contemporary culture says to go after desire, pursue your “I want” list ruthlessly. Christianity seems to send a different message: Wanting is sinful and selfish. Faith is about obedience and sacrifice.
How do we reconcile the longings in our hearts with the God we're called to follow?
Ladies, please join with us this fall for a two-study series designed just for YOU! The first part of this study is entitled, "Teach Us To Want," and will take us on a brave journey through our many desires, longings, and ambitions. Featuring real-life stories of women wrestling with their desires—we will dive deep into Scripture and discuss what it means to desire as a Christian. We will show biblically how it's not only OK to name and voice our desires—it's actually holy to do so. When we freely let God know our desires and allow them to be informed by Scripture and re-formed by our spiritual practices, we'll discover a God more loving and generous than we can ever imagine.
The second part of this group study is entitled, "Perfect Love." We all want to be known and loved. Though we can experience deep relationships with others, there will always be a hole in our hearts for the perfect love of Christ. But, what does that really mean? How do we pursue intimacy with an invisible God? What if we do not feel worthy of His love? How can we respond when troubles kidnap our security in Christ? In this session, we will walk through the Song of Solomon to answer these questions. Though romance and marital love are typically associated with the Song of Solomon, we will take a Christ-centered approach to illustrate how this ancient love story is relevant to your life and relationship with Jesus today. Through this study you will learn how to embrace God's perfect love and realize your own beauty and worth in God's eyes.

We will join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before. • Discover how Jesus is the key to satisfaction by learning the crucial significance behind each of His I AM statements. • Trade feelings of emptiness for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is. • Grow in biblical literacy with this exploration of the Gospel of John.
