Build Community


Family Fellowship Ministry (formerly Christian Family Movement)

Families, faith and FUN! That's what Family Fellowship Ministry (FFM) is all about. By joining FFM, families will be placed in a group with about 5-8 other families to share in friendship and support. These small groups meet monthly and engage in fellowship, charity, prayer and study to more fully live out the Christian faith in the world and in their homes. Groups are forming now. Please use the links below to register for the 2019-20 FFM year.

N.E.W. Ministries

N.E.W. Ministries is an outreach ministry to women who are new to the community and adjusting to the transition of moving. Join us for this class and let us guide you as you let go, start over, and move ahead with your life after the move. N.E.W. is designed to embrace, support and encourage through a biblical and practical group study. Come meet new friends, receive practical help in adjusting to a new area, and find encouragement to see your move through a Christ-centered perspective. This class is based on the book, "After The Boxes Are Unpacked."
