Adult Ministries

Men’s Ministry
Our men’s ministry focuses on prayer and fellowship. Each Tuesday 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)

 

We are presently in a new cycle of Adult Bible Classes. Two classes are offered. One class is based on Sebastian Traeger and Greg Gilbert's The Gospel at Work. The other class is based on James Montgomery Boice and Philip Graham Ryken's The Doctrines of Grace. The books for these classes are available for purchase in the bookstore.

The Gospel at Work:

Many Christians fall victim to one of two main problems when it comes to work: either they are idle in their work, or they have made an idol of it. Both of these mindsets are deadly misunderstandings of how God intends for us to think about our employment.


In The Gospel at Work, Sebastian Traeger and Greg Gilbert unpack the powerful ways in which the gospel can transform how we do what we do, releasing us from the cultural pressures of both an all-consuming devotion and a punch-in, punch-out mentality - in order to find the freedom of a work ethic rooted in serving Christ.


Solidly grounded in the gospel, The Gospel at Work confronts both our idleness at work and our idolatry of work with a challenge of its own - to remember that whom we work for is infinitely more important than what we do.

The Doctrines of Grace: 

We live in an age of weak theology and casual Christianity. And this situation will continue as long as God's people insist on substituting intuition for truth, feeling for belief, and immediate gratification for enduring hope.


Yet if evangelicalism will again denounce this self-centered faith and place Christ and his cross at the center of its vision, the church will see great days once more. According to authors James Montgomery Boice and Philip Graham Ryken, this will happen when believers specifically return to the gospel foundation with its doctrines of radical depravity, unconditional election, particular redemption, efficacious grace, and persevering grace – The Doctrines of Grace.

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.
