Community Groups: Small groups that meet in homes, after church, or on Zoom to share life together, dig into God’s Word and grow in His grace. Interested in hosting or attending? Please let Pastor Paul or Pastor Toby know!
Youth Group: meets in 2 cohorts (Cohort A: Yr 11-12, Cohort B: Yr 7-10), and each cohort will be divided between guys and gals. Meetings will be every Friday from 7:30-9 pm, typically at the Gayner’s house, with cohorts meeting every other week. Cohorts will be led by Toby Gayner (guys) and Kelly Gayner (gals), with support from other young adults and parents as able. Our usual format will focus on discussion, Bible study and application of the Sunday sermon series in 1 John, as well as have time to discuss general “Questions of Life” and pray together – all in the context of hanging out around the outdoor fire, playing pool, or being creative in the kitchen. We ask that if anyone or members of their household are feeling unwell or has flu-like symptoms, please stay home and let us know.
