You can learn a lot of Sunday morning, but there is always more to discuss, process, and learn that you can't do by just listening. Small groups are a critical part of our lives as we seek to transform into a community through whom God's love flows. Sign up for a small group today and take one step closer to a transformed life in Christ.

  • PIecemakers Quilt Group

    The Piecemakers Quilt Group has met most Fridays since 2006. We learn and practice the art of quilting as well as other handwork skills, believing that our creator God has given everyone the ability to create. At each meeting there is a short time of devotions which includes Scripture and prayer. Since its beginning, the Piecemakers have tried to live in community. We “rejoice with those who rejoice, we mourn with those who mourn,” both inside and outside group meetings. We welcome women who want to practice any handwork skills and who want to fellowship with other women.

    When: Ongoing - Fridays 10 am - 12 pm (or longer)

    Who: Anyone

    Details: Bring your own supplies

  • Ladies in fellowship together - LIFT

    LIFT has become a connection and fellowship time for ladies, and their invited guests, in which we share a meal, a devotional time and usually something fun and a little crafty.  In the past, our group has travelled to concerts in both Rochester and Houghton, visited the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens and the Abbey of the Genesee. While these outings have been fun, the real beauty of LIFT is the chance to share prayer concerns within the group and the encouragement each one receives through the daily (almost) contact through devotions sent by text and/or email. This connection, especially throughout the recent isolation brought on by COVID 19, has proved essential in keeping one another focused on the unfailing love of our Lord and His faithfulness in the midst of strife.

    When: Monthly, September-June

    Who: Women of all ages
