Grandparents are an important spiritual influence for the next generation. Through a five session study we invite you to learn more about living out your Biblical role as grandparents.  We will look into such topics as:  Passing on your legacy; Understanding the culture our grandchildren are growing up in; The importance of the spoken blessing over your family; Untangling the digital world; and Stepping into all that God has for you as a grandparent.

Bring your bag lunch and join us in the lower church hall beginning Sunday, October @ 12 noon.  Sessions will be held every other Sunday.

Women’s Time Out every Thursday morning from 9:30am -11:30am.We will be picking up where we left off in the spring on chapter 8 in the book “Becoming a Woman of Grace”.  We explore the many ways God’s grace has already enriched our lives and how we can know His grace more fully and extend it to others we meet in our day to day lives. Any ladies are always welcome to join us.  We are currently looking for someone who would be willing to babysit for us. For more information please contact Brenda G.
