Small Group

GEMS - Good Enough Moms

Meets September through April

GEMS is a group for mothers with any age children, to support, encourage, and have fun together. We know that a mother can be stressed out and trying to stretch herself too thin, which inevitably leaves a feeling like she’s just not good enough, doing enough or being the best she can be….

Zioneers

Not quite old enough for Youth but still wanting to hang out with friends on Sunday night? Join other 4th & 5th graders for Zioneers!

Several Sunday evenings through out the year from 5:00-7:00 pm we meet and for food, fun and fellowship.  Our events vary from month to month but good times are always part of the plan! 
Parents sign your child in at the Kids Center Welcome Area. 
Remember all children must be signed in and out.

Dads!

Meets September through the end of April.

Are You a Dad?

If so, we have a group for you! Join Dan Edmonds and Jack McCord as they host a laid back gathering of guys every Wednesday night from 6:15-7:15pm in the lounge (room with couches by the gym).  Every week varies from short devotions or  service work around the church, but every week the goal is just to meet and know more guys around the church.  

For Dads with any age children.

Infants may stay with Dad. Childcare available at no charge.
