GEMS - Good Enough Mothers

Meets September through April

GEMS is a group for mothers with any age children, to support, encourage, and have fun together. We know that a mother can be stressed out and trying to stretch herself too thin, which inevitably leaves a feeling like she’s just not good enough, doing enough or being the best she can be….

Dads!

Meets September through the end of the School Year.

Are You a Dad?

If so, we have a group for you! Join Dan Edmonds and Jack McCord as they host a laid back gathering of guys every Wednesday night from 6:15-7:15pm in the lounge (room with couches by the gym).  Every week varies from short devotions or  service work around the church, but every week the goal is just to meet and know more guys around the church.  

For Dads with any age children.

Infants may stay with Dad. Childcare available at no charge.

Pastor's Lectionary Discussion Group

Join Reverend Cassie Rapko for the Pastor's Class on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 - 7:15 pm. Drop in any WOW Wednesday in the Upper Room for this lectionary-based Bible study. We present and discuss the scripture passage from each week’s revised common lectionary. No prep work required.  Come as you can, each night is a stand alone discussion.

Meets regularly following WOW dinners. Check the event calendar and class schedule for exception dates.

The Well is a Bible study group which began almost 20 years ago to draw women of different ages and at different life stages together.
