On Sunday, August 20, 2017, we began a new Sunday morning schedule. The worship services begin at 9:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. We no longer have Sunday School classes between the services, instead we have Fellowship Groups meeting at the same time as the worship services. The Fellowship Groups meet for the same length of time as the worship service—1 hour 15 minutes—and provide opportunities for fellowship, for prayer for one another, and for engagement in the study material chosen by each group. Our goal for the Fellowship Groups is to foster community in the church body through interacting with one another, studying God’s Word together, and praying for one another as we grow in our relationship with each other and with God.
The Fellowship Groups are generally divided by stage in life, but this in no way limits which group you attend. You are free to commit to any group you would like. The choice is yours!
On Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. there are two Fellowship Groups:
- 4:12 (1 Timothy 4:12): This group is open to anyone, but generally includes adults in their late teens to early 20’s, who are college students, single adults, and young married couples without children. This class meets in the living room of the White House.
- Sojourners: This group is open to anyone, but generally includes single and married adults who desire intergenerational community and who do not have children involved in Children’s Sunday school or the Youth Fellowship Group. This class meets in the Fellowship Hall.
On Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. there will be two Fellowship Groups:
- Group 116 (Romans 1:16): This group is open to anyone, but generally includes single and married adults in their 20’s and 30’s. Parents in this group likely have infants through elementary-age children. This class meets in the Fellowship Hall.
- Cornerstone: This group is open to anyone, but generally includes single and married adults in their 40’s and 50’s. Parents in this group likely have pre-teen or teenage children. This class meets in the living room of the White House.
Children’s Sunday school and the Youth Fellowship Group will also meet at 10:45 am. Click here for more information on how this new Sunday morning schedule will play out for children, youth, and families.
Our hope is that our time together on Sunday mornings will foster ever deeper community and spiritual growth for our church body. For even more about the why and how of Fellowship Groups, check out the video at the top of the page.
