We are very proud of our Small/Life Group ministry. Our goal is to get everyone involved and committed to learning, it is one of our seven Faith Values.

We are renaming our small groups, “Life Groups”, with the intent that what is being studied is “life changing” and “relevant.” to your life as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We are grateful to our Parish Nurse, Barbara Marlin for heading up this ministry. However, we would welcome someone to take this off her plate and see it as a calling or passion to serve God in this way. Below is a listing of our present and future groups.

We hope to make the website more interactive for people so that you can sign-up and even purchase books online. If you would like to sign up for a Life Group, just fill in the Contact Information and you are done!

Fall Life Groups
Please SIGN UP!! There are several different life group topics being offered.  Life groups are a great way to get to know people better!


Every parent has dreams for their children. As parents, we all start out with the best intentions. Although, at some point, we move from DREAMS to DUCT TAPE and hope that each day everything will just stick together. Raising kids in today’s culture is a difficult challenge and it requires a plan. Without a plan, parents usually default to Quick-Fix Parenting. Let’s face it: it’s just easier to focus on immediate problems rather than deal with the deeper and more important ones. Surviving each day is much easier than taking the time and energy to consider how parenting actions impact a child’s future. We get it. To be an exceptional parent, you need to be an intentional parent. But, don’t worry! You’re not alone and Doug and Cathy are here to help. They’re veteran parents who can help you move from Quick-Fix Parenting to Intentional Parenting.

It’s never too late to become an intentional parent. Remember, you are the GREATEST influence on the life of your child (no matter their age)! And it can all begin with these resources. Let’s walk this important journey — together.

Intentional Parenting:
Meeting: Sunday’s from 9:40 – 10:40
Length: 5 weeks long
Time: January 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th and February 5th
