  • What are you reading, watching or

    listening to?

    Grab a beverage and join us on Zoom to talk about books you’re reading, podcasts or music you’re listening to, and TV shows or movies you’ve been watching.  An informal opportunity to visit with friends (or make new ones) and share what you’ve been doing to occupy yourself while we’ve all been limiting our social contact.  You might just get some fresh ideas to help while away the hours!

  • Prayer Changes everything

    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 meet twice a month on first and third Tuesdays of each month at 5:30 p.m.  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.
