COMMUNITY GROUPS

Friendships are one of the most rewarding aspects of life.  The new (and continuing) East Woods Community Groups bring people with mutual interests together in an informal setting.  Establish closer relationships with those you know or meet new friends.  This is an easy way to introduce friends to East Woods.  Come join the fun!

  • Prayer Changes everything

    (To Return in the Fall)

    Prayer is an opportunity to spend time with God.  In John 15:15, Jesus says He no longer calls us his servants, but calls us His friends.  This is time set aside for friends to gather and pray together in a deeper relationship with Him. 


    This community group is open to anyone that needs time in prayer with others.  We will share our concerns for our world, our local community, our church, our family and friends and for ourselves.  


    This is an open forum with no expectations.  It's just a time to share and pray together as people of faith in the power of prayer and the comforting knowledge that God listens to our prayers.
