Circles are better than rows.

We grow in groups together. We grow in our faith as we study God’s Word. We grow in our friendships with one another as we spend time together. We believe growth happens best within small group ministry and we encourage everyone to connect to a group where they can grow together. Below are are current group ministry offerings and opportunities to connect to a group. 

Sunday Morning Bible Study Groups

We have 3 different adult classes that meet each Sunday morning at 9 am to study God’s Word together. These groups meet in classrooms in our Fellowship Hall building. 

*Senior Men’s Group, led by Dan Bistarkey

*Senior Ladies’ Group, led by Carol Bistarkey

*Co-ed Adults Group (all ages), led by Vince Collier


Men's Group

Kingdom Men Rising happens each Wednesday night at 6pm in the Fellowship Hall.

Puppet Team

Our puppet ministry group meets most Saturdays at 2:30 pm. This ministry focuses on learning and using puppetry skills to share the love of Christ with others. 

Team members present regularly in our KidZone ministry and occasionally in for the church family in a worship service.  Additionally, they are available to present in various community settings, such as nursing homes, senior living centers,  and retirement villages.  If you’d like more information, contact Thelma by calling the church office (941.966.2705) or emailing 


Ladies Group

Interruptions. They’re aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. But how we handle interruptions actually tells us more about ourselves. What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run!   

In this 7-session Bible study, Priscilla Shirer redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God’s invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.  

This group will be led by Pat Stahl and Vanessa Baugh and begin meeting Monday, July 30, 2024 from 9:30 – 11:30 am., in the Ladies Bible Study room in the Fellowship Hall.
