We have a wide variety of classes, groups and learning opportunities for adults.
Some are specifically need oriented, such as Financial Peace University, Divorce Care, Grief Share, a wide variety of Priscilla Shirer and Beth Moore studies. There are athletic opportunities, and volunteering for things like Dayspring Community Sports, child and teen groups and community improvement projects. We are working to make some serious impact on our surrounding community.
Our ultimate goal is for each and all of us to grow in faith, character and increasing likeness to Jesus Christ, who is our salvation. Faith in Christ and being part of His Church are two of the greatest investments that we think you will ever make. Come check us out for yourself!

Al-Anon Family Group Meeting
What is Al-Anon: Al-Anon Family Group meetings bring the friends and family members of alcoholics and addicts together to share their experiences and learn how to apply the principles of the Al-Anon program to their individual situations. You will learn that you are not alone in the problems you face and that you have choices that can lead you to a greater peace of mind - whether the person you care about continues to use or gets clean and sober.
How It Works: Al-Anon members do not give direction or advice to other members. Instead, they share their personal experiences and stories, and invite other members to "take what they like and leave the rest." Individuals determine for themselves what lessons they could apply to their own lives.
Meeting Time: Tuesdays, 7:00-8:00pm
Course Description: GriefShare is a network of thousands of grief recovery support groups meeting around the world. Griefshare is a program with direction and purpose.
