adult discipleship

Discipleship is many activities focused on enhancing the ability of adults to live as Christ would have us live. We are called as a church, and as individuals, to love God, to love one another, and to make disciples. 

Discipleship helps us to learn more about God and helps us grow in our ability to love one another and to grow as disciples.  

Everyone is encouraged to routinely participate in fellowship before and after service on Sundays. Weekly and special opportunities to grow include classes, retreats, and small groups.  

For any questions contact Cynthia Younger (Walk To Emmaus) or Keith Bloss (Discipleship Elder).

Theology Book Club

2nd & 4th Sundays @ 3:00pm

currently meeting via the Zoom platform

This is an informal group that reads a wide variety of books that are theologically themed. Sometimes we complete a book discussion in one meeting, other times we spend multiple Sundays. 

We agree as a group how long we spend on a book, and then decide together what we will read next.

Several days prior to each meeting book notes will be sent out.

Please contact Carol Domench or if you are interested.
