Women’s Connection generally meets Thursday mornings during the school year and does a combination of large group study and small group time.

Many of the small groups are still meeting for the summer to check in and pray. If you want to join one, email [email protected] and she’ll see if she can match you with a group.

The Mom’s Group meets Thursday evenings due to SIP. Contact Rolana for more info.
