Scripture Circles: Immerse. A different kind of Bible Study where we wrestle with theology and God’s word, where the Spirit drives the agenda, where we enter a sacred and safe space that offers healing and wholeness. We are gathering in living room settings, taking time to immerse deeply in Scripture that meets us where we are. Make space for what matters most. Make space for the Living Word to feed you, fill you, nourish your deepest soul. Hosted by Stephanie Spencer & Mary and Jim Fisher. Time: 3rd Thursday 8:45-Noon. Location: Fireside Room. Questions: contact Rev. Sara Wilhelm Garbers.
Thursday Morning “Dudes & Donuts”: Join with other men over coffee and donuts as you delve into scripture and build community with one another. This study is led by Rev. Jeff Lindsay. Time: Thursdays from 7-8am. Location: Library. Questions: contact Rev. Jeff Lindsay.
Thursday Morning Women’s Fellowship: Gather with other women for a deeper dive into our stories and prayer together. Time: Thursdays from 7:30-9am (food and coffee at 7:30 and  the program starts at 8am). Location: Hearth Room. Co-hosted each week by different women. One of the hosts shares her story or a particular learning and the other host provides the breakfast goodies and facilitates prayer.  Requests are shared amongst the group and community with other women is built through hearing from one another. Questions: contact Rev. Sara Wilhelm Garbers.
Friday Morning Men’s Renewal:

Join other men in fellowship, sharing and prayer on a weekly basis. Since its inception in 1978, this group has been developing strong bonds with fellow believers and always welcoming newcomers with open arms.

There are usually 25-30 who meet each week, although, over the years, more than 125 men have been actively involved in this ministry. We take turns both leading the weekly discussion and hosting a simple continental breakfast. There is no pressure to do either – nor does anyone take attendance.  All are welcome. Just come whenever you can.

Where: Colonial’s Hearth Room

When: Friday’s from 6:45 – 8:15 a.m.

Questions: Contact Rev. Sara Wilhelm Garbers.

Sunday Morning “Kick-Start”: Start off your Sunday by delving into the scripture passage for morning worship. Time: Sundays from 8:15-9:15am. Location: Hearth Room. Hosted by: Mel & Kathy Saterbak. Questions: contact Rev. Sara Wilhelm Garbers.
Wednesday Morning Praise, Prayer, and Study: Gather with other women to re-fresh and re-center mid-week. Time: Wednesdays at 9:30am. Location: Library. Hosted by: Lareign Paulson. Format: Gather together to pray, worship, and study scripture. Questions: contact Rev. Sara Wilhelm Garbers.
