Children’s Classes — 11 am every Sunday

Classes for the children provide an opportunity to study Bible doctrines in a manner that the children find interesting and relevant and/or Bible stories with application in a survey which teaches the big picture of the Bible.

Adult Classes — 10 am every Sunday

Our early classes emphasize the believer’s relationship with God, the application of biblical principles to daily life, and effective Christian service. Plans for 2018 include a study of Pilgrim’s Progress as well as a variety of video presentations on creation, church life, and current cultural issues. A missions presentation is given on the third Sunday of each month, in conjunction with our monthly missions emphasis Sunday.

Mid-Week Bible Study — 7 pm Wednesday (check calendar)

Our mid-week Bible study is a time for spiritual refreshment and corporate prayer.  We are currently addressing questions about the existence of God. Occasionally we have an evening dedicated to singing songs by request.

Personal Discipleship — scheduled privately as needed

Individual needs and interests are recognized through Bible studies available with a mentor for anyone who desires help.

Leadership Training — Sunday evenings during school terms

Men and women are both encouraged to participate in a 10-course Bible-based curriculum which is designed to equip leaders for service in the local church.  Classes currently running include Bible Doctrines  and Principles of Bible Study. Enrolled students represent four Waikato area churches.

Ladies’ Bible Study — monthly meetings

A monthly evening Bible study for women with topics applicable to living as women in today’s world. Contact for details of location.

Teen and Young Adults — Sunday afternoons and evenings

Our teens and young adults currently enjoy a weekly Sunday afternoon hike and a Sunday evening fellowship, sometimes with an outdoor activity and usually with a movie and, of course, food. This friendly group welcomes newcomers.

CAP Money — budgeting course

CAP Money is a four-week course that helps participants take control of their finances. Taught from a biblical perspective, our church members have received immense benefit from applying the principles. This course is offered several times a year. Please register your interest in attending the next course.

Other Fellowship Opportunities

The third Sunday of every month we enjoy a shared lunch and fellowship following our services.  This is a great time to visit informally with anyone in our church family.  There is always plenty of food.  We also periodically enjoy a movie evening when we watch and discuss a Christian movie.  Teen camps and retreats as well as men’s and ladies retreats are enjoyed annually.
