Spiritual formation (grow)

We are called to GROW in our knowledge and love of God, becoming alive to the presence of Christ in our midst so that we may become faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples (Deuteronomy 6; Matthew 22.37).

During this pandemic, we have not been able to hold our regular Sunday School classes, bible studies, small group gatherings, or Wednesday evening meal and classes. Some of our groups are now meeting regularly online via Zoom video calls. We also have launched a new streaming Bible study service through Amplify Media, which you may read about here. Please watch this space for more information about studies and classes as they are made available. In the meantime, we invite you to participate in the following:


Christian Buzzwords

A Six-week Study for the Church

Led by Pastor Jeff Babajtis

Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall


Beginning on August 1, Pastor Jeff will be offering an in-person, indoor Sunday School opportunity open to anyone interested. We will meet for six weeks at 10:00 in the main room of the Fellowship Hall to discuss the Biblical meanings behind some often used Christian buzzwords. We hope to see you there as we try to breathe new life into these worn out yet beloved words.
