ENCOURAGING & EQUIPPING FAMILIES TO MAKE JESUS THEIR ALL AND SHARE HIM WITH ALL
Mom & Dad Disciples
GroupLife connects couples and parents who learn to follow, love each other, and live on mission as disciples of Jesus. Families classes are grouped by family life-stages such as married without kids; single parents; parents of preschoolers, kids, and youth; and groups preferring multi-generational connections.
MidWeek | Wednesdays 6PM
Every Spring and Fall semester, MidWeek groups meet to address a life stage issue or an area of needed growth. MidWeek classes include men’s, women’s, and other studies that further one’s life journey with Jesus. MidWeek is also the home of Re:generation and other groups making up our Wellness Ministries.
Every Spring and Fall semester, Re|Engage leads couples to invest in their marriage through weekly at-home work and encouragement in a small group of other couples led by a seasoned mentor couple. We also form Re|Engage mentor groups in mentor couple homes throughout the year, as requested.
