Long Term Care Groups
Care groups are a vital part of Sterling's ministry. Care groups are small groups of people who commit to meet together on a regular basis. This is a chance to study the Bible, share about life, and pray for one another. There are a variety of groups that meet on different days and at different frequencies.
Are you interested in joining a care group or want more information? Please contact us.
Short Term Care Groups
Faith Exploration Classes (March 25 - May 13, Sunday Mornings from 9:30am-10:30am)
Are you exploring your faith and the possible steps of baptism and church membership?
These exploration classes are meant to be a way for us to journey together as a church community in questions of faith. Baptism and membership should never be forced, but should come from your own willingness to declare yourself a follower of Jesus and your commitment to live out your faith in a church community. We want you to be able to explore what this means, asking questions about what is on your heart. If at the end of these sessions you feel like you are not ready quite yet, that is okay.
If you are interested in joining these classes or want more information about membership and baptism, please contact Moses (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The Sterling Book Club (October 25 - December 6)
The purpose of this book study is to come together as a small group to read and discuss a book about theology, faith and life. Join us for a fascinating study together as we meet to discuss what we have read. We will meet 4 times over 8 weeks to ask each other questions, enter into dialogue, and challenge one another in faith. Please contact Moses Falco for more information or if you would like to join (email@example.com).
