This Couples/Family Life Group will take a chapter by chapter approach to Bible Study starting with 1 Peter. Each meeting will take a deep dive into a chapter or two of the Bible to learn what it has to teach us and how we can relate it to our everyday walk with Christ. We meet bi-weekly at church on Sunday's from 6:00-730 PM.
We typically meet near the kids singing room. If you have children, and want to bring them along, they are welcome to play or do their own study there during our study times.
Facilitators: Jeremy & Nancy Huenink
Improving with Age
Aging is more than growing old. What do we do to prepare for it? What do we do while it happens? What is the upside to growing older? What is my new role and what does my new lifestyle look like? What about taking care of myself for now… and the next generation for the future? What does God say about growing older? What are my responsibilities to the church and God’s kingdom as a senior?
A discussion style life group following the book “Improving With Age” by Jill and Stuart Briscoe. Meeting on Sunday evenings thru the fall and winter months. Group limited to ten people.
Facilitator: John Wenig
Our good intentions to pray must be followed by our immediate actions to pray. We need to “Just Do IT!” If you have a passion to pray for others, then this life group is for you. Come and join a time of sharing and praying.
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2 NIV)
Facilitator: Barb Wenig

Beauty in God, Art and You
We will explore scriptures about God's passion for beauty and the arts. Reflections of God – The Theology of Beauty will help us learn the process as we come together to paint in my studio on Lake Michigan.
