Energy + Acne

Junior High can be an awkward time for young people to navigate; a safe, encouraging and Godly group to hang with sure helps! During our junior high years we are forming: our identities, relationships, world views. We do this with school and friends, but even more important is to form strong identity, relationship and world view with the God who made us. He loves us... zits and all. J-Group is our space for enjoying these crazy years of formation.

Almost Adulthood

During our senior high years, we own the least as far as school goes. But there is a much bigger world that awaits us. These times of trial and error, or mistakes and successes are pivotal times that help cement the foundations that we have - educationally, relationally and spiritually. At S-GROUP we focus on healthy relationships - with both God and others. We have time to play, eat, pray, chill, talk and most importantly, study God's Word together.

Open Tables

Breaking Bread Together

Open Tables are opportunities for us to gather around a table and share a meal while engaging in gospel conversation in a casual atmosphere. Open Tables take place at different locations, on different nights of the week and at different times—depending on the host family. Each table is themed, so you will know what to expect and what to bring. Dinner is...whatever everyone brings to the table. Invite a friend, come for food, stay for the wonderful people and conversation. Hope to see you at our next gathering!

Meander With Mike

Summer Hikes in the Adirondacks

Meander with Mike in the Adirondacks and experience God through creation and the Word. Build stronger bodies, relationships and faith. Hikes are rated by difficulty – some are good for families and some for adults that are in shape.

Space is limited on all hikes. Check out our list of upcoming hikes and please register ahead of time.

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. —Romans 1:20, NLT
