Monthly meetings – These meetings generally include dessert, a presentation from a local or international mission (recent projects have included human trafficking and local Christian rehab centers), and the business of the group.  Contact the church office for more information.
The Baby Boomers take many opportunities throughout the year for times of fellowship.  From attending sporting events, throwing a chili cook off, and enjoying the biggest football game of the year together are just a few of the ways they connect outside Bible Study and worship.

Faith Small Groups

Sunday Morning Small Groups

  • “Followship” Sunday School Class  – Room 114/115
    • Followship class 2014This class is multi-generational, and often consists of people ages 35-80, although we always welcome young people. Generally, our class consists of 10-15 people. We tend to focus on studies that relate to how we as Christians can live a more Godly life in our modern-day society.
    • Leader: Vickie Stevens
  • Inter-generational Group “Gatekeepers” – Parlor
    • If you are looking for an inter-generational Sunday school class then come to the Parlor. This class is an easy-going, multi-generational, discussion-based class. We like to dig in deep to scripture and thus often move slowly through a curriculum.  
    • Leader: Becky Nelson
  • Boomers – Meeting in-person & via Zoom™
    • If you are still working or recently retired, empty-nested or caring for your parents—in other words, if you are a Baby Boomer—this class is for you.  They do several activities throughout the year from chili & soup cook-offs to baseball games and their own version of the Olympics.
