Children’s Classes — 10 am and 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 as well as Bible stories with application in a survey which teaches the big picture of the Bible.

Youth Group — monthly activities

Our young youth enjoy a regular monthly activity including fun outings, crazy games, community service, as well as Biblical teaching and healthy discussion of topics affecting youth of today.

Young Adults — Sunday afternoons and evenings

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

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 2022 include a worldview study comparing biblical vs modern perspectives on a variety of topics.

Mid-Week Bible Study — monthly

Our mid-week Bible study and fellowship is a time for spiritual refreshment, corporate prayer, and supper.  Occasionally we have a Bible quiz night or an evening dedicated to trying new songs for consideration of use in our Sunday services.

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 — weekday 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, Old Testament Survey and Preaching Biblical Messages. 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.

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.
