New: Yoga @ CotS
Grounded in the desire to meet with God, yoga practice at CotS is an opportunity to slow down and pay attention to your body and your breath. This group is open to anyone willing to try and appropriate for beginners or long-time practitioners. The sessions are led by a certified instructor.

Small groups provide a place for ongoing spiritual formation, as well as friendship and fellowship. They are a great way for new people to get plugged into our community, and for long-term members to get to know others in the church. Some small groups are kid-friendly, some for adults only. There are Bible studies, book studies, and groups that meet for fellowship meals. One of these groups could be right for you! Contact Pastor Chris for more information.
Our Adult Education program is designed to help us grow deeper in our faith and learn more about the Bible, theology, and the Christian life. We have regular Adult Education classes on Sunday mornings at 9:15am, September through May. Classes are informal and discussion-oriented, and childcare is provided. We also sponsor community-wide evening events. Questions? Contact Pastor Chris.

Reading the Bible together helps us to grow in knowledge of God and friendship with each other. We study scripture not only to know about God, but to know God and be transformed by God's Word.
Periodically, the congregation is invited to read scripture connected to a sermon series. Generally, there are suggestions of different ways to engage with the scriptures and times to share with the community.
There are Bible studies for women from September to May. One group meets on Monday mornings (9-10:30am) and the other on Thursday evenings (7:30-9pm). Both groups meet at the church.
A bible study for men meets at a congregant's home on Friday mornings (6-7:30am).
If you would like more information about any of these groups, please contact our office.
