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 R. Kent Hughes’s Disciplines of a Godly Man. The other class is based on Barbara Hughes's Disciplines of a Godly Woman. The books for these classes are available for purchase in the bookstore.

Disciplines of a Godly Man:

No man will get anywhere in life without discipline―and growth in godliness is no exception. R. Kent Hughes’s Disciplines of a Godly Man is filled with godly advice aimed at helping men grow in the disciplines of prayer, integrity, marriage, leadership, worship, purity, and more.

With biblical wisdom, memorable illustrations, and engaging study questions, this practical guide will empower men to take seriously the call to godliness and direct their energy toward the things that matter most.

Giving his recommendation, John MacArthur states, “Discipline is a subject about which the Scriptures say much―but contemporary authors have been peculiarly silent. Kent Hughes fills a gaping void with this superb volume. You’ll be challenged and encouraged as you read. And if there is a spark of spiritual desire in your soul, this book will surely kindle it into a blazing passion for godly discipline.”

Disciplines of a Godly Woman: 

Maybe discipline seems like a hard word to you―implying nothing but challenge and duty. Yet most of us see the value in cultivating spiritual disciplines, and we long to be more consistent in our relationship with God, even in the midst of our busy lives.

Combining biblical teaching, poignant stories, and insightful reflection questions, Barbara Hughes explores 15 vital disciplines in this classic book―helping us to mature as godly Christian women and giving meaningful shape to our lives.

 

Giving her recommendation, Kathleen Nielson writes, “Barbara Hughes shares both God’s Word and the joy of living it. In her own warm voice, she invites women to believe and to adorn the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s an invitation not to a list of abstract disciplines, but to the grace of God that trains us in all the layers of real life.”

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.
