Wednesday night Bible study groups meet in
the sanctuary and then after prayer and short worship in music, divide into
study groups. Each class is designed to equip the disciple with the biblical
knowledge to first feed themselves and then help to feed others.
Adult Bible Study Classes are divided into
fall and spring semesters, with each semester lasting 16-18 weeks. Each fall
and spring, the classes offered will vary. Classes may teach through an entire
book of the Bible or cover a topical issue. Some semesters may have classes
that follow along with the Sunday sermon and take a deeper look at the text
covered. These elective style classes let you grow in your knowledge and
understanding of Scripture.
The 2022 spring semester our main class will
be Kingdom Citizenship. This class will cover crucial teaching that defines
biblical roles and methods for operating in the Kingdom of God.
The SBC Women's Conference is a great time
for learning more about the Word & each other. This fall event gives us a
chance to focus on learning how to become a godly woman and how to apply that
to our everyday lives. What does it look like to be a godly woman? This
conference answers that question. We encourage any woman, 18 and up, to attend! Each
spring is the Ladies’ Retreat. This event is a fun filled, overnight retreat held at various
locations in our area. We use this time to build relationships, getting to know
women with whom we may not get to routinely spend time. It’s a time to enjoy games,
dining, and relaxation as you build lasting relationships with the women of the
The M & M’s
represent the mature members of our congregation ages 50 and above, however, 18
and above are welcome, we do not discriminate. There are no age limits to
this group. The M & M’s meet
once a month to fellowship. These meetings usually consist of outings to
restaurants, Murray’s Dinner
Theatre, and weekend trips to various places such as Branson, Mo. It is great
when God’s people
come together to learn more about each other and build relationships that will
help them grow closer together and closer to Jesus Christ. The M & M’s invite you to come and be a part of this fellowship ministry.
Manday Monday is a time where the men of our church can
gather together and fellowship (swap lies as we call it). This is a very casual
gathering at Jimmy’s Italian Restaurant in Malvern at 6pm. The first Monday of
every month is when you can look to find the men of our church at Jimmy’s!
We take two annual trips that we label as family trips.
These trips are intended to give families an opportunity to not only create
memories as a family, but also fellowship and get to know other families within
our church. These trips take place in the early part of the summer and in
December. 2022 summer trip is to Silver Dollar City in Branson.
Our CNC group is lead by Milton Paredes. This group of
young adults meets regularly in a variety of ways. Each Sunday morning at 9am
they meet at the church for a time of Bible study. In addition, this group
meets for various outings and fellowships outside of the normal church setting.
Milton is focused on meeting the needs of these young men and women through
biblical instruction and counsel leading to them being faithful and active
servants in our church.
Periodically, we have a Family night. We
meet at different locations for activities. Some of the activities include
renting the water park, Family Farm, the theater, or bowling. Family nights
help blend our growing church and give opportunities to meet new members and
members you may not regularly see. These outings are for our entire church
