Small Group Opportunities

Small group actvities Kicked-Off last Sunday ! But you can still come and spend some time together getting to know each other better and have some fun! Small group activity gatherings happen on Sundays from 6-7:30 pm at church and will occur on the first and third Sundays of each month.

All groups will run simultaneously and you can move between groups, or stay in a group, all evening. Group activities will also change from time to time so stay tuned and join in the fun!

Manna and Lent

This Lent Manna will be exploring the intersections of faith and mental health. Every Tuesday from February 28 through April 4 we will see what the Bible has to say about different mental health related topics including depression, anxiety, suicide, and self-care, and discuss what this means for our own lives today. Manna is open to all young adults and meets Tuesday evenings in the youth lounge, 6:30pm-8:00pm.

“A History of Racism: An Experiential Journey via the Power of Film”

You're invited to an immersive experience of what Black brothers and sisters have endured for centuries through images, sounds, and music from Hollywood movies and other video sources. Mark Stucky will lead three sessions pondering the periods of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow, and then current issues (such as police shootings and reparations).

The Academy class will meet in the Parlor from 11:15 to 12:15, Sundays, Feb. 12–26, Those not able to attend can still view abundant class resources and links at, and those that will attend can use the links to preview, review, and delve deeper into the session experiences. (This is a "reboot" of the class from last March, but for those who attended all the sessions last year, about 20% of the material this time will be new.)
