MERGE

Merge is on break for the summer and will start again in September.

Life is demanding. We understand how difficult it can be to find time together as a family simply to share a meal. We also recognize the importance of taking a little time each week to fellowship, pray, and worship with friends with whom we can relate. MERGE is designed to come alongside you and your family in these goals. It is a time to come together as a community of believers. Together we can eat a meal that you did not have to plan and prepare, and then we can take a little more than an hour to grow our relationships. Whether you are a family or single, adult or youth, there is something for you at MERGE. Come join in our community!

BIBLE QUIZZING

4:30–5:45 pm Wednesday, Rooms: 301, 303, 304, 305

Grades 4–12

Every month our youth, grades 4 through 12, learn passages of Scripture and train to answer Scripture-related questions in preparation for a monthly competition against Bible quiz teams from many other churches. Teams go head-to-head in two-way matches consisting of 20 questions. During MERGE we meet to train—and have a little fun as well.

YOUTH GROUP

6:45–8:15  Wednesday
Youth Room

Grades 6–12 

 Youth Group is a place where students from all walks of life come together to fellowship. For those students who have dedicated themselves to the Lord, we work with, and through, to help minister to the students who do not know the Lord. We are passionate about using Youth Group as a training ground. This involves "doing" as much as it does "learning." Youth Group is the time where we help students learn about their spiritual gifts and then create opportunities for them to grow. Our strategy is not only to pour into your student, but also to help your student know how to reach others for Christ.

LIVE IT OUT!

6:45–8:15 pm Wednesday
Room: 305

Adults

A low commitment, open discussion group will unpack Pastor Dan's sermons from the previous Sunday. Focused on application, this group is where the rubber meets the road. How do we as individuals, as a small group, or as a church put into practice Pastor Dan's challenges to us from Scripture? Led by Pat and Diane McCullough, this group is intended to foster community and relationship as much as it intended to foster spiritual growth. Significant time is devoted to relationship-building, prayer, and support. We welcome you to join when you are able, and your schedule permits it!
