Pre-arranged Groups

i.e. (Invite and Engage) Groups:  There are currently two i.e. groups.  The groups exist to invite and engage people in living as Jesus’ disciples through meaningful relationships and the study of God’s Word.  Guided by scripture and curriculum authored by Pastor Steve, participants discuss the previous week's sermon in order to learn how to live out Christianity in everyday life. 


1.  Don and Carolyn DeMint are facilitators for another group comprised of both men and women, who meet every Thursday evening in the DeMint’s residence.

2. May Simonds is the facilitator for a group comprised of women only, who meet every Friday at noon in the Dueber residence. 


At least once during the 8 to 10-week session, each group schedules a service event and an activity “just for fun”.  This photo was taken when the members of May Simonds’ group went to a local art studio for a painting lesson.

Sunday Night Book & Bible Study:  This small group study meets every Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. in the Bride's Room of the church.  The study is facilitated by Elizabeth and Galen Hokama and uses various Christian authors and Bible studies as subject matter.  Currently, they are discussing Adam Hamilton's "Revival: Faith As Wesley Lived It".
