Classes & Groups 

Friday Friends (Senior Adult Women) | Carolyn McCallum | Avon Campus

A group of women gather to study the Bible on Friday mornings from May through October. We are studying Overwhelmed by Love (the letters of 1, 2, 3 John). This group is open to all. No registration required. The study is held at 10 a.m. in Room 332 (Library).   

Women's Bible Study | Jeannette Brennan | Avon Campus

This fall we're digging into Scripture to explore how God created us to seek after Him - a God who desires to be found and known. We're using the Beth Moore video study, The Quest. Join us as we learn to develop intimacy with Jesus and embrace the adventure that comes with living a life for God. The study begins September 12 at 6:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary, and then in Room 328A. Book Cost: $18.  REGISTER HERE

Women's Bible Study | Tracy Scarborough | Valley Bristol Hub

Join us as we study Listen, Love, Repeat, a six-session Karen Ehman video Bible study. Our culture is self-obsessed – in our schedules, relationships, and especially online. So why are people less content than in decades past? Because we forget the joy that comes from putting others first. Doing so requires us to live alertly, listening for “heart drops": hints from those in our lives who need a helping hand or a generous dose of encouragement. The study begins September 18 at 7 p.m. at The Hub (17 Farmington Avenue in Plainville).   REGISTER HERE.

Leadership Development | Avon Campus

Learn how to be a stronger, better leader at home, work, and church with the series The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John Maxwell. This is part of a Men's Fraternity program, but this class is also for women! The study begins September 12 at 6:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary, and then in Room 328B (Valley Cafe).     REGISTER HERE

Precept | LuAnn Turbiak | Avon Campus

Luke’s first account was his Gospel, where he recorded what Jesus did and taught. Luke's second account is called Acts, or the Acts of the Apostles, in which he recorded what happened after Jesus’ ascension to the Father. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, empowering the apostles to testify to the power of God in salvation and in living every day for the Gospel. Learn how God spread the Gospel through witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and from their examples, how you, too, can witness to others. The study meets Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. in Room 206 and begins September 12. Book Cost: $20. REGISTER HERE

Mothers of Preschoolers | Kelly MacChesney, Meg Pascucci | Avon Campus

This community features great speakers on topics such as strengthening your marriage, improving your mothering skills, growing in your faith, and fostering meaningful friendships. Invite a friend! We always have great food, hot coffee, and lots of conversation around the table. MOPS meets from September to May, roughly every other Monday, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Room 206. The first session is September 18. There is a $55 fee for MOPS International dues and craft materials. REGISTER HERE

Moms Bible Study | Heather James | Avon Campus

This Bible study group meets twice monthly at the Avon Campus. Using the book None Like Him by Jen Wilkin as a springboard, we’ll dive into the Bible together and study the character of God. Knowing God’s character affects our daily lives, our relationships, just about everything! All women are welcome. Please join us! MBS meets from September to May, roughly every other Wednesday, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Room 206. Book cost is $10. Childcare available. REGISTER HERE

Women's Growth Group | Laura Costley, Julie Terelmes | Avon Campus 

Join us for an exciting new Growth Group on Saturday nights for women of all ages and life stages. Start the evening with worship at the 5 p.m. service at the Avon Campus. We will fellowship over dinner and then spend time studying God's Word together. We are kicking off with Lysa Terkeurst's study Finding I Am - How Jesus Fully Satisfies the Cry of Your Heart. We will explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John, learning to trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is. Book Cost: $15. The study begins on Saturday, September 9 at 6:45 p.m. in the Library.  REGISTER HERE

Moms In Prayer (Avon Group) | Barbara Schoenly | Avon Campus

A mom can be the single greatest force for good in the lives of her children and the children around her.

The Avon group meets two Wednesdays a month, from September through May, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m in Room 209. This group primarily has moms with adult children, but all are welcome. Our first meeting will be September 20. Contact Barbara Schoenly for further info. No registration required.

An ESL Bible study for women meets every first and third Thursday of the month from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Library at the Avon Campus.
