Welcome to Adult Ministry

A disciple is one who seeks to follow Jesus and grow in relationship with God, one another, and the world.

There are many opportunities available – Alpha, Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies, Life Together Groups, Conversation Groups, and Sunday Classes, as well as Beyond Sunday Seminars.
