We are made for community. Learn more about how to get connected.


Christians are called to “bear one another’s burdens” (Gal 6:2), “forgive one another” (Col. 3:13), “exhort one another” (Heb 3:13), “be devoted to one another” (Rom 12:10), and more. All of these could be summed up simply in the command to “love one another” (Col. 3:14). We believe the word “belong” best captures the responsibility contained within the New Testament idea of “love" to share our lives with one another.

This rich sense of belonging does not happen automatically, but takes time and intentionality. Yet there are several spaces that can help you to begin to build those connections.

Home Groups

We have several Home Groups that meet weekly in our church and have the same simple outline of 1). Eating a meal together, 2). Discussing a passage of the Bible, and 3). Praying together. These are not quite small groups as each Home Group has 15-20 people so that it feels more like a party. We purposefully gather in people's homes as well so that we practice hospitality and enjoy a more informal, laid-back setting.

We currently have five Home Groups that meet for roughly 12 weeks in the fall and another 12 weeks in the spring as take a break for the winter holidays and through the summer. Here are the current times and homes:

Wenzel/Tesone Home Group - Sterling KS - Sundays from 4-6 PM *Childcare Provided

Millhouse Home Group - Sterling KS - Mondays 6:30-8:30 PM

Watney/Johnson Home Group - Sterling KS - 6:15-8:30 PM

Bible Studies

We have three women's Bible studies that are currently meeting through the Fall and Spring. Each group has been studying a different topic or book of the Bible, but we gather all the studies together for a gathering at the end of each session to connect and share what has been learned. Here are the current times and places:

Table Coffee - Sterling KS -

Parish Home - Sterling KS -
