For information on how to join a group, please contact Pastor Greg Zook.

  • SATURDAY MORNING WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY

    We meet on Saturday mornings from 8:30am - 10:00am at Janet Randall's home.   Beginning on Saturday, September 9th we will start a study:  Breaking Free:  The Journey, The Stories - Member Book by Beth Moore leads you through a study of the scriptures to discover the transforming power of freedom in Jesus Christ.  Themes for this study come from Isaiah, a book about the captivity of God's children, the faithfulness of God, and the road to freedom.

    This in-depth women's Bible study draws parallels between the captive Israelites of the Old Testament and New Testament believers in Jesus as the Promised Messiah.  Beth looks at the Book of Isaiah through the lives of the kings who ruled during the prophet's ministry.  These kings exemplify many of the obstacles to freedom with which we must deal.  Using Scripture to help identify spiritual strongholds in your life, no matter how big or small, Beth explains that anything that hinders us from the benefits of knowing God is bondage.

    Join Beth Moore on a Bible journey unlike any other.  God intends for you to know and believe Him, glorify Him, experience His peace, and enjoy His presence.  Breaking Free is Beth's life message that she wants to share with you. 

    For questions, or how to order your book, please see Janet.

  • women's wednesday morning bible study

    The Women’s Wednesday Morning Bible Study  will begin on September 13 and will meet weekly at 9:30am at Kathy Nyland’s home.  The study will be “Eyewitness to Glory-Moses: Discerning God’s Active Presence”.  "Moses was an eyewitness to the glory of God.  Despite his sometimes crippling sense of inadequacy, he was chosen to free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt.  Moses' encounters with our Lord enabled him to continue despite his personal sense of unworthiness and the many obstacles and hardships he experienced along the way.  'He persevered because he saw Him who is invisible' (Hebrews 11:27)."


    Study books are $10 and may be picked up at the first meeting.  Facilitator: Linda Quimby.

    "Above us and around us God directs a grand saga, written by his hand, orchestrated by his will, unveiled according to his calendar.  When you're part of this story, your life has purpose, you recognize your value, and you discover your unique path.   Max Lucado guides you through the events of the New Testament to show you there's more to your story than you ever imagined.

  • PRECEPTS

    Hall #2.  Using the study resource from Precept Ministries, you will develop skills in the inductive Bible study method and grow in the understanding of the Book of "Judges - Driving Out Your Enemies".  "Nothing has changed from the days of the Judges - people still do what is right in their own eyes.  Absolutes are shoved aside and the result is bondage to sin.  Only God's truths and moral principles bring peace and freedom from bondage."
