    • Young Families

      Groups meet with children to bond, learn and play. This summer families met for Ice Cream Mondays with TED Talks and Playground Fun - Parents brought their children to enjoy the playground under supervision, watched a TED talk, had some adult conversation, then enjoyed some ice cream before heading home. Similar activities pop up as folks get inspired.
    • Small Prayer/Support Groups

      Members of these groups meet weekly or bi-weekly to study, pray, and support one another. Times vary based on the group members. Current groups focus on parents of young children and parents of older children or empty nesters. We will be assessing the need for more groups. Existing groups will be open to new members on a quarterly basis. Come to information sessions at the beginning of each quarter to learn more about groups.
