WHAT HAPPENS ON SUNDAY THE ORCHARD COMMUNITY WELCOME
Grow where you are planted _ seeking to grow and prosper together

Encounter Scripture Regularly

Grow Where You Are Planted!

Small groups are one of our main goals as a church this year. We hope to provide ways for you to grow and prosper TOGETHER! This goal is comprised of 3 parts:

  1. Encounter Scripture Regularly
  2. Invest in Relationships
  3. Serve

Get connected!

Below you will find many options to get plugged in and stay connected!

All of the following small groups are open for you to join whenever you are available.
Most are low commitment groups with no homework and each meeting is a stand-alone study, so don’t worry if you can’t make it each time.

Those that meet via Zoom, you can use your computer, laptop, tablet, or phone. Zoom works with audio and video, or just audio alone – your choice!

Invest In Relationships

Small groups are a big deal!

A small group helps you grow by connecting with others, studying the Bible, and praying together.

Not sure what small group is just right for you? Contact Jo Schultze (joanna.l.schulze@gmail.com) or Richard Smith (r_smith122@hotmail.com) for more information about new small groups in the works! Or contact the Host listed below for more information about the individual group.

Parents Life

Sundays at 9 am (Sept 19, via Zoom)

Parent Life Zoom meetings will start Sept. 19, 9 AM, discussing scripture references for that day’s sermon, hanging out, and supporting each other as parents.  We’ll also continue to have quarterly outdoor in-person social events at local parks.

Open to parents with kids of all ages and in all stages.
Parent Life digs into the Bible as our guide for raising children, building strong families, & living life. We support each other by sharing experiences and prayer, as we lower the facades that hinder God’s work in us. You’ll be excited to see how the Bible relates to life, see how other parents go through the same struggles you do, and experience the hope we have in Christ.
