Adults


Adult Activities

Our activity list for Adults.

  • CATALYST

    Catalyst - noun, "a person that precipitates change." That is our desire for you in our adult ministries. Of course, in order to be a change agent, we must first of all be changed ourselves. Change comes from the Lord. Our life is in Him. We are never independent agents but always in a dependent partnership with Him. It is a life of receiving from the Lord and sharing what He has given us.


    Our desire is that all adults find their place in our church to connect with the Lord and others for encouragement, growth, and fellowship, have deep caring relationships, and to serve others here and in the community with whatever gifts, abilities, and experiences the Lord has blessed them.  


    Please take the time to visit our "Welcome Desk" on Sunday. Not only will you find coffee and conversation but you can also receive info on opportunities to be involved. We have prepared a "Welcome Packet" of information that will help you know us a little bit better. If you don't find what you are looking for, please ask one of our helpful hosts / hostesses. They will be happy to assist you with whatever questions you may have.
