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 November 8th at 6:00 p.m. we will start a new cycle of Adult Bible Classes. One class will be based on John MacArthur’s book Standing Strong. The other class is What is the Gospel?. Most of this class will be based on Greg Gilbert’s book by that title and the last two weeks will be drawn from Milton Vincent’s A Gospel Primer. 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.

 

Standing Strong Class:  

What's the truth about spiritual warfare? Some Christians live almost as though the spiritual realm doesn't exist, while others see a demon behind every negative thought or behavior. In Standing Strong, MacArthur purposes to reveal the truth between these two extremes, and offers a balanced, biblically sound approach to spiritual warfare in the life of a believer.

MacArthur examines key scriptures to debunk modern fallacies, define true spiritual warfare, and share what that looks like for believers today. Throughout, you’ll be encouraged and equipped to stand strong in the face of every spiritual challenge.

 

What is the Gospel? Class:

What is the Gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God. Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul's systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and a response. The book carefully examines each and then explores the effects the gospel can have in individuals, churches, and the world. Both Christian and non-Christian readers will gain a clearer understanding of the gospel in this valuable resource.

 

A Gospel Primer: To the Christians in Rome, the Apostle Paul said, “I am eager to preach the gospel to you who are at Rome” (Romans 1:15). Evidently, Christians need to hear the gospel even after conversion; and A Gospel Primer for Christians is designed to help you do just that. In this little primer you will find short passages of biblical truth to help you savor the glories of God’s love and experience the life-transforming power of the gospel in all areas of life. Use this book to preach the gospel to yourself daily and be amazed at the difference it can make in your 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.
