We believe that knowing Christ is a journey where we learn more each day we open our hearts to God’s call on our lives. As a church family, we participate in this work through study, prayer, and worship. Below is a list of offerings that touch on these three areas.

- E-Men Social

- Adult Acolytes
Being an acolyte isn't "just for the kids", it is a ministry to the church service that adults are more than welcome to take part in. An acolyte assists in worship by carrying a processional cross, lighting candles, holding the Gospel book, holding candles or "torches", assisting a deacon or priest set up and clean up at the altar, handing the offering plates to ushers, and many other tasks as seen fit by the priest. We are always looking for more acolytes!
- Supper Club
Every Third Friday or Saturday of the Monthfrom 6:30-8:30 pmSupper club is a time of food and fellowship where you can get to know your church family in a relaxed setting in someone’s home.
