Trying to make a living, relationships, health issues, being a parent, taking care of a parent, loneliness. With all of these responsibilities sometimes it is easy for a person to slowly drift away from God. For that reason, we study the Bible every week in adult Life Groups.

This is where connection happens, where groups of people come together to live life and dig deeper in the scriptures as a community.

If you seek understanding of the scriptures and desire to take part in meaningful discussions of faith, come check out any of our Life Groups! For more information, contact the church office by phone (417) 862-0789 or by email
