Community Life

ConneXtion - Small Groups

Join a ConneXtion Group


Connecting is what we do! You are invited to be a part. Many have found the joy and growth through weekly gatherings in small groups even on Zoom over the last year. All are invited to be a part.

These are the kind of comments we hear:

  • “This has been a stimulating time, we want to keep meeting, so good to get to know each other better.”

  • “I could have not survived the last few months without this support, I have been strengthened!”

ConneXtion Groups meet on a variety of times and days of the week. View a list of ConneXtion groups, Bible studies, and other small group opportunities on our Find a Group Page, which includes scheduled meeting times and ability to contact the group leader to join the group or for more information. You can also contact Kate in the church office for more information.

Prayers and Squares Quilters

Prayers and Squares, a ministry of care, prayer, and nurture through quilts, is hoping other folks would like to to join us. Over the years, we have had as many as 12 members, but currently, we have five. We are not daunted – in fact we have now blessed others with over 215 quilts!

We welcome all who are interested to join us on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 AM-Noon in the Lake View Hall, regardless of quilting knowledge. God finds a way to use all our talents in this ministry.

local & Global Missions


Our church strives to follow Jesus' urging in carrying out His mission in the world. Much of the response to God's call to care for His people springs from within the congregation as individuals, families, and small groups acting on their own to reach out. We also  support various missions as a church body, with support coming from budgeted giving, special offerings, the Alternative Gift Market, and designated giving from individuals.
