What to Expect

Lions Midweek
Wednesday evenings are a time of fellowship and Bible Study as a complete Youth Group. Following midweek meal with our church family, we enjoy time in games before studying our righteousness training.
Sunday Small Groups
Sunday mornings we meet in Small Groups to study individual books of the Bible. Our small groups foster individual relationships as we look to make personal application from God’s word in our lives.
