Co-Ed volleyball on Sunday nights at Santa Clara High School. We will be competing against other churches in the area playing 2 to 3 games a night. A team devotional follows each game. Multiple teams and levels of play to choose from: recreational, intermediate, advanced. A great opportunity to invite friends to play with you. Game start times depend on team level. Between 6pm and 9pm start times.
No prior experience or knowledge of soccer is required. The aim is to have fun, fellowship and provide encouragement. Spouses and children too young to play can come out and share in the fellowship. There's a park nearby for the little ones. Invite your friends from the community to experience church in a neutral environment. We will have a team devotion before each game.
This is a support group for parents. The goal is that parents can be a bridge between church and home in their kids' faith lives. Using ideas from Stormie Omartian's "The Power of a Praying Parent," you'll gain new understanding and insight in praying God's way for your children. You'll also discover how to effectively pray Scriptures over yourself and your child—a practice that will powerfully affect your child's life for eternity.
We are a group of moms striving to be Godly women while accomplishing the daily tasks of raising children, working, and home life. We come together for support, fellowship, prayer and scripture that relate to our trials and joys.
We are discussing a Lifeway Guide to the Gospel of Mark. We will move towards the book of John as the trimester progresses.
