Adult Ministries & Small Groups

Adult Groups provide opportunities for you to meet consistently with other adults for authentic community and spiritual growth. These groups meet at various times and locations, so you can find one that works best for you (check out our calendar page for details). 
 
Chancel Choir:  meeting for rehearsals every Thursday evening @ 7:30 p.m. Like to make a joyful noise to the Lord? The Chancel Choir leads music for the 11:00 a.m. worship service. We perform a wide range of traditional compositions and work hard to make each piece as precise and meaningful as possible. We seek to glorify God and to inspire the faith of all who hear.
 
Circle of Hope: meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday @ 11:00 a.m. in the Youth Room (during the school year)Circle of Hope is a multi-generational interactive Bible Study care group encouraging inclusiveness to all women.  We seek God’s guidance in caring, learning, sharing and growing.  Meetings are at church the 3rd Thursday of each month except June and July.  We are currently studying a J. Ellsworth Kalas’ book, “If Experience is such a Good Teacher, Why do I keep repeating the Course.”  You are invited to join us.  We promise a warm welcome.
 
Emmaus Reunion Group (for women): meeting every Thursday evening at Peace @6:30 p.m. The Emmaus reunion is a small accountability group of women who have participated in the three-day Walk to Emmaus and who want to continue their pursuit of a life lived wholly in the grace of God.  These small follow-up groups help pilgrims translate the message conveyed on the Walk to Emmaus weekend into a daily walk with Christ.

Pursuing Peace Class: meets very Sunday from 10:45 – 11:00 a.m. & 12:15 – 1:00 p.m. in the Youth Room.  PEACE – not just the name of our Church. A distinctive Fruit listed in Galatians 5:22 that serves as proof that the Spirit guides us in our everyday lives. Most want peace. Not everyone has it. Is the peace greeting that we extend each Sunday morning flowing naturally into our day to day routine and easily called upon in our darkest hours? Perhaps, we are not to be “seeking” peace as much as we are to live like we are truly PURSUING PEACE. Every Sunday, immediately following, both the 9:30 and 11:00 services, engage in practical conversation that incorporates the weekly Scripture and sermon message in a mature yet relaxed environment to promote Christ-like peace. 
 
Praise Team: meets weekly for rehearsal on Wednesday evenings @ 7:45 p.m. The Praise Team is dedicated to glorifying God with our music. We believe that praise expressed through joyful song can bring new dimensions to worship. To accomplish diversity and musical excellence, we are always looking for skilled vocalists and musicians. Please contact the church office for an audition meeting.
Shalom Sunday School Class: meets weekly on Sundays @ 9:30 a.m. in the Choir Room. We discuss Scriptures, share mutual experiences and learn from each others’ faith journeys.  Although the primary membership includes adults age 40 and older, adults of any age have attended and are welcome. The class is led a retired pastor who guide the participants through in-depth Bible Study (Adult Bible Studies) that explores themes and individual books of the Bible.
