  • If men ministering to and growing spiritually with other men is something you are open too, consider being part of a local prison Bible Study group called Restoring Broken Walls. It can be done out of your home as a sponsor to inmates through a correspondence Bible study or join the volunteers that go into Freeland Correctional Facility each Monday evening to help facilitate a Bible study group. In either case, books are provided, only your prayerful concern and time are required.  See or call Creston Shmidt (600-1279) for more information.  God's kingdom is alive and growing within prison walls, come and be a part of it.  Sessions are led by Creston Shmidt

  • Marriage small Group - The Song of Solomon offers strikingly candid—and timeless—insights on romance, dating, marriage, and sex. We need it. Because emotions rise and fall with a single glance, touch, kiss, or word. And we are inundated with songs, movies, and advice that contradicts God's design for love and intimacy.


    Matt Chandler helps navigate these issues for both singles and marrieds by revealing the process Solomon himself followed: Attraction, Courtship, Marriage ... even Arguing. The Mingling of Souls will forever change how you view and approach love.  Sessions are led by Curt Holsinger

  • One of the things Jesus declared when He walked the earth is that He came to give us a full life (John 10:10). Not full as in too jam-packed but as in "abundant and overflowing!" Join this family friendly life group as we live that out together! These periodic meetings might look like a group bike ride on the rail trail, or bouncing in a jump house, or paddling down the mighty Titabawassee, or cooking s'mores over a bonfire! But they are actually cleverly disguised ways to show your coworkers that Christian's don't just share life in churches or at St. Arbucks! Come find the full life Jesus wants to share! And allow the conversations of our full life group to overflow to your coworkers and friends so that many more will find Life!  Sessions are led by Curt Holsinger
