Adult Ministries

Men’s Ministry
Our men’s ministry focuses on prayer and fellowship. Each Friday morning, the men meet in the church office for a time of prayer before heading out to work. On the last Saturday of each month, the men of the church meet for prayer and then enjoy breakfast together. Afterward, the men do the project of the month, such as raking leaves, replacing light bulbs, painting, or cleaning.

 

Ladies’ Ministry
Our ladies’ ministry focuses on enriching women’s lives through the Word of God and fellowship. The ladies have a secret prayer sister ministry through which the ladies of the church pray for teen girls in the church. The ladies are assigned a secret prayer partner who they commit to pray for and encourage throughout the year with anonymous gifts. After a year’s time, the prayer partners are revealed. Other events throughout the year focus on prayer and fellowship, including Ladies’ Prayer Breakfasts, a Ladies’ Luncheon, and a monthly small group.

Adult Bible Classes (ABC)

 

Beginning May 9th at 6:00 p.m. we will start a new cycle of Adult Bible Classes. Two classes will be offered. One class will be based on Tony Reinke’s book 12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You. The other class is based on a Puritan classic, The Mystery of Providence by John Flavel. On the sign-up sheet, please indicate the order in which you would like to take these two classes. The books for these classes are available for purchase in the bookstore.

Your Phone is Changing You Class:

Do You Control Your Phone—Or Does Your Phone Control You?
Within a few years of its unveiling, the smartphone had become part of us, fully integrated into the daily patterns of our lives. Never offline, always within reach, we now wield in our hands a magic wand of technological power we have only begun to grasp. But it raises new enigmas, too. Never more connected, we seem to be growing more distant. Never more efficient, we have never been more distracted.
Drawing from the insights of numerous thinkers, published studies, and his own research, writer Tony Reinke identifies twelve potent ways our smartphones have changed us—for good and bad. Reinke calls us to cultivate wise thinking and healthy habits in the digital age, encouraging us to maximize the many blessings, to avoid the various pitfalls, and to wisely wield the most powerful gadget of human connection ever unleashed.

The Mystery of Providence Class:

Do we believe that everything in the world and in our own lives down to the minutest details is ordered by the providence of God? Do we ever take time to observe and meditate on the workings of Providence? If not, are we missing much?
It should be a delight and pleasure to us to discern how God works all things in the world for His own glory and His people’s good. But it should be an even greater pleasure to observe the particular designs of Providence in our own lives. Flavel wrote his book to persuade Christians to do that very thing.
Since Flavel’s work was first published in 1678, it has gone through many editions. Based on the words ‘God who performs all things for me’ (Ps. 57:2) this work shows us how Providence works for us in every stage and experience of our lives. The book is richly illustrated from the lives of believers and from the author’s wide reading in church history. There are avenues of spiritual knowledge and experience opened to the Christian in this work which he probably never knew existed.

Small Groups

 

Small Groups Overview
Once a month, we meet in home small groups in CT and MA for Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Time is spent reviewing and discussing a recent sermon.  As we personalize and apply the sermon together, we not only grow in our walk with the Lord but also in our love for one another.
