life groups


Life Groups are the heartbeat of true Christian community.

They are about connection doing life together.

"...Encourage each other, and build one another up."  (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

"...Care for one another." (1 Corinthians 12:25)

Group consist of 8-18 adults who meet together regularly in homes or at the church to encourage each other, study God's Word together, and do life together.


When you go to a Life Group you can expect:

  • Community Time: Get to know each other over food and casual conversation.
  • Bible or Book Study: Get to know God and His Word through studying His Word, encouraging each other in our faith journey, and individual ministries.
  • Prayer: Bring our joys and needs to the Lord together, and watch for His provision.


We have a variety of Life Groups to choose from. If you'd like help getting connected, or more information about Groups, call or text Tim Pryor at 740-548-9777, or email us at

Current Study: Shades of Light, by Sharon Garlough-Brown

Starts Wednesday, Oct 2 at 7.30p

Shades of Light is a study of mental illness. Author Sharon Garlough Brown provides an in-depth look at depression through the eyes of Wren, a twenty-something woman, and through the eyes of those around Wren. It can be read independently of the other books in the Sensible Shoes series; the story does not depend on having read the other books.

Women of the Covenant are committed to advancing God's Kingdom by equipping women to grow, serve, and reach out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Combining local Bible and book studies, service, and fellowship opportunities with denominational projects that advocate for women who have been abused (AVA), that support education for girls in Congo, that fight human trafficking, they connect women in transformational relationships and unite them in Christ to impact our world.

For more information, please email Phyllis Van here.

Study Description

The Life of Trust: The Autobiography of George Müller

From the distributor's website--

The name of George Müller is synonymous with faith and trust in God. The mere mention of his name oftentimes invokes images of helping the orphaned and feeding the poor. But that compassionate heart wasn’t always so. As you read many of the accounts from Müller’s own diary, you will discover his own personal journey from sin and rebellion to profound transformation that compelled him to devote his life to feeding and sheltering orphans. In this autobiographical story of his life and ministry, discover God’s bountiful provisions as Müller unceasingly relied upon God’s goodness in order to feed, clothes, and house thousands of English children under his care. Discover examples of his unwavering faith in a heavenly Father who continually watches over, protects, and cares for the needs of all his children. This book will inspire you to confidently trust in God, even when life seems too great a burden to bear. You will, at the very least, learn how better to live a life of trust.

Books are available (payable to Dave Tomashewski)
