Adult Ministry

Rebecca Peterson

Associate/Adult Pastor

Every Christian needs a community of believers to support
and encourage them in their walk with the Lord.
The body of Christ is meant to serve and be served by each other.

LIFE GROUPSOur Life Groups, usually 3 – 15 individuals, center around the purposes of worship, fellowship, ministry, discipleship,and evangelism. Life Groups meet at the church or in homes at various times throughout the week. These groups offer an opportunity for people to love and be loved in a small group settings, to find inspiration and encouragement, to mature in the faith, and to feel at home and comfortable sharing life’s joys and struggles.

If you would like to join or lead a life group, please contact Rebecca Peterson for more information.
