Adult Ministry – November 2015


The Adult Ministry Team has a new leader/director, Luke Morgan. Luke has been part of the team and has transitioned to the leadership role. Since the Adult Ministry Team had been a new committee at the beginning of the year, Nancy Steenwyk and Karen Bazen started as co-leaders of the team, with the goal of identifying a team member as one who could eventually transition to being the leader. Luke, with his background in adult education, has gifts that match what is needed for the team and has accepted the leadership role. 

Recently, representatives of small groups and the Life Groups met to discuss how their groups were doing and to answer any questions they might have. We found that the groups are having good discussions, and growing in relationships with other people and with God. Most of the groups are continuing, but there are additional leaders identified who will have room for you in a group if you are interested. The next opportunity to join a Life Group will be to sign up for one on January 3, when the church will have a mini-Winter Festival, similar to the Fall Festival.

Kevin and Polly Johnson have a few weeks left of the Andy Stanley “Follow” series during the Sunday School hour. If you haven’t joined in yet, there’s still time – and room – for you. Bren Shantz will lead an adult Sunday School class on the four Gospels once the new year begins. 

For Wednesday night studies, Polly Johnson is just starting a brief series called “The Christmas Experience” with the ladies’ class. For the second half of the year, she will be leading the discussion on two video series from Andy Stanley, “Guiderails” and “Life Rules.” Ladies who would like to join the group are invited to attend. The other class offered after the new year will be a Discovery Class that will be led by Pastor Paul.
