We welcome any who are interested to join us!

We have two Small Group Study offerings for the season of Lent. If you’re interested in joining one, or simply want to learn more, let us know!

1. Easter Earthquake – Exploring how Jesus’ resurrection shakes up some of our most basic assumptions about our lives, our world, and God. This energizing study will inspire you to live as a more faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.

Held at Washington Street


2. PAUSE for Easter – A 40 Day Journey with Howard Thurman. This book of excerpts of Thurman’s writings linked to scripture with questions for contemplation are a perfect way to go deeper in your spiritual journey during Lent.

Started in the home of members and founded upon the words of John Wesley, Active Faith is a group with a heart for service. To learn more about this small group,




This study is a 34-week overview of the Bible study that spends equal time in both the Old and New Testaments, emphasizes the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God, and allows participants to grasp God’s overarching plan for humanity. It is a great way to delve deeper into the Bible, gain a better understanding of the faith you claim, and participate in formational fellowship with fellow believers.

In addition to the weekly meetings, there is daily Bible reading and study (approximately 30 minutes a day).

Deadline for registration has passed, but look for this to be offered again!
