Grow Groups

On Sunday morning before the regularly scheduled service, adults gather in grow groups for one hour of bible study. Grow groups encourage you to dive deeper into God's word to develop a solid faith foundation. Several grow groups are offered to help you mature in biblical knowledge, discipleship, and evangelism.

Life Groups

At various times throughout the week, adults meet in small groups to foster their faith through teaching, fellowship, and prayer. Life groups provide opportunities to meet new people, pray for each other, and build lasting relationships as members "do life together." Groups usually meet in homes and choose bible studies relevant to member interest. Groups are always welcoming new members and new groups are frequently forming. Contact the church office at 847-695-8812 for more information.

Women's Bible Studies

Rich and deep are two words which accurately describe our women’s ministries. Learning opportunities include weekly Bible studies (day and evening sessions), small groups, conferences and retreats. Fellowship events include banquets, informal dinners, game nights or special interest groups, such as quilting and card making. Child care is provided for many gatherings.

No matter where you are within your spiritual journey, there is a right-size group for you to explore your purpose within the world and develop a greater dependence upon the Lord. For more information, contact Becky Sevey.

These gatherings encourage men in all stages of their Christian journeys to connect with others and to discuss the things in life that matter. Drop-ins are welcome. For more information about getting connected, contact Dwight Klitzke at
