First Hour Prayer
Mondays, 8-8:55AM

Be a part of a growing and committed circle that has found a powerful way to begin the week by joining together in prayer for our church, community, nation and world.

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.      1 Timothy 2:1-4

Book Study

Bringing Down Walls
First Wednesdays of the Month, 3PM

We’ve created a space that allows honest conversation and exploration around matters of race. We acknowledge many of us just haven’t had to grapple with these issues before. As tensions mount and the divide seems to grow, we look to Jesus as our model and hope, seeking to understand, giving voice to concerns and fears, and moving toward a transformative response. We’d love to have you join us. We meet at 3PM on the first Wednesday of the month via Zoom. Questions? Curious? Contact Elizabeth Rabinowitz

small group women

Women’s Bible Study
Thursdays, 10AM

The Thursday morning Women’s Bible study is a great place to explore the Bible, ask questions, get answers and grow in faith. This group is filled with women of all ages, various backgrounds and different degrees of Biblical knowledge. There is a lot of interaction and discussion that leads to deeper levels of learning, spiritual growth and fresh perspectives. The women in this group have developed strong friendships and are now a solid support system for one another. The group routinely prays for one another and shares each other’s cares and concerns. It is always open and welcoming to new members.

If you have questions, email Deb Ahle at

Women’s Thursday morning Bible Study is currently studying the life of Elijah. In this study we will discover how Elijah’s obedience to God kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited Heaven’s fire to fall. All this can then be applied to our lives as well. We are using Priscilla Shirer’s Elijah: Faith and Fire as a guide.
