Growth groups meet weekly for 10-12 weeks.  The size of a small group is 3 to 15 people. There is a fall semester, a spring semester, and a summer session, with breaks between each.  The growth groups are an opportunity to:

  • Grow in your faith;
  • Step out of your comfort zone into a safe environment with new people and new ideas;
  • Allow casual friendships to form without feeling a need to get too personal;
  • Develop friends who could then become more intimate friends outside of the group;
  • Receive prayer if you so desire.

Please contact Dan Rak for more information.

A new set of growth groups started in February, 2021. (The in-person groups are limited to 10 people and include social distancing, face-masks, and other safety measures.) Watch for when a new set of small groups is announced.

The Reason for God

Thursdays, 7-8:30pm in the parsonage. A book study.

Also participation through Zoom. Use the signup below to request a link.

A New York Times bestseller people can believe in—by “a pioneer of the new urban Christians” (Christianity Today) and the “C.S. Lewis for the 21st century” (Newsweek).

Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics, and even ardent believers, have about religion. Using literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and potent reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand their ground against the backlash to religion created by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics, he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.
