STEP 2: Grow
We want Elmwood to be a place where people from all walks of life can encounter Jesus and be led to where it is He desires them to be. We believe that much of the time He does this within the context of community, which we help facilitate at Elmwood in a variety of forms:
Small Groups: Small communities of Christians seeking to follow Jesus together. Click here to join a small group!
Guys/Gals Night Out: Monthly hangouts that create space for those of the same gender to connect on a deeper level.
Adult Class: A consistent opportunity to dig deeper into the truths of God and consider how these truths interact with our everyday life. Each fall, winter, and spring we hold a class designed to help Christ followers grow in their walk with Jesus in the context of local church community. Currently we are on a break from adult class until the fall. To watch online versions of our previous courses (with printable content in the description), please click here.
Senior Bible Study: A space where those of the elderly generation can engage in fellowship while considering what faithfulness to Jesus looks like in their particular season. The senior Bible study meets the first Wednesday of every month, in the Fireside Room. The senior Bible study is on break for the summer and will resume in the fall.
Ladies’ Prayer Group: Join the ladies of our community on Tuesdays at 10am in the Fireside Room as they praise God and make petition through Jesus Christ.
