Our class welcomes all those who are seeking a deeper understanding of what it means to follow Christ in an atmosphere of Christian love and fellowship. While we are a class of primarily middle-aged empty nesters, we have and welcome both married couples and single men and women of all ages. We cover a multitude of topics in a variety of formats, from topical study series to video learning series, but always solidly based in a Biblical context. We believe in studying together as well as having active social interaction throughout the year and enjoying a variety of activities, which gives us an opportunity to get to know each other in a more meaningful way.

Walker Small Group
Desiring to engage with others in your life journey? Wanting to explore God’s Word to discover the practical application of eternal principles to your daily life?
Join us Sunday mornings to study Scripture together, share our insights with each other, and discuss how we will apply them to our lives today and the rest of the week.
This may be the small group for you if you:
1. Are open to hearing the truth from God’s Word;
2. Value dialogue to explore how the truth applies to your current (or previous) season of life; and,
3. Desire to cultivate meaningful relationships with other flawed people experiencing grace and mercy from a perfect Savior.
