What Is The Purpose Of Adult Ministries?

The purpose of Adult Ministries is to help you understand and apply the gospel in your life as you enter into community with others to worship, serve, and glorify to God wherever you live, work, and play.

We offer a variety of opportunities for you and invite you to also check out the Men’s and Women’s Ministry pages for additional offerings.

Small Groups


Small Groups are a great way to get connected and meet others. We offer small groups for men, women and couples. Please visit our Small Groups page for a listing of the opportunities to get plugged in.

If you’d like to find out more or connect to a small group,  contact Pastor Josh Desch.
