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 


Grief Share

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.  With GriefShare you will learn how to walk the journey of grief and be supported on the way.  It is a place where grieving people find healing and hope. The program runs 13 weeks and topics that will be discussed range from "Is this Normal?" to Challenges of Grief, Why? Guilt and Anger, to "Heaven". 

The GriefShare experience includes three key elements that work together to help one recover from the deep hurt of loss.  Video seminar; group discussion; and a personal workbook.

You have lots of choices when it comes to churches. But, One size or style does NOT fit all. We understand that. Our goal is to stay a long way away from the two dominant reasons some people avoid church…dull and irrelevant. We try hard to be neither.

By the time you spend an hour or so on site at Dayspring we hope you will sense the energy, purpose and importance that we place on our times together. We attempt to help connect you with God and others around you.

Excellence in the areas of Worship, Children and Teens constitute our priorities. We have recently added to that our passion to connect with and serve our surrounding communities.

We want a person’s church experience to be positive, informative, friendly, supportive and related to life issues. Come join us for this wonderful journey.
