Affinity Nights
Affinity Nights take place on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm for 6-8 week "rounds" throughout the year. The night starts with a potluck (6-7pm) and then folks participate in the evening's offerings from 7-8pm. Offerings might include Bible Study, Yoga, pickup choir, arts & crafts, service projects, board games, trivia, book club, and more! Affinity Nights are for people of all ages! Fall Affinity Nights are running from now until Nov 8, 2023.

Starting a FELLOWSHIP/Affinity Group

Our church is proud to offer a variety of fellowship/affinity groups for adults who attend our church. Our members are empowered to start something new when they have an idea or see a need to be filled. And all our fellowship/affinity opportunities are supported by program staff and by our Discipleship Ministries Team. So, if you're interested in starting a new  fellowship/affinity group please contact Pastor Alexa with your idea. We can't wait to hear it!
