Check out our list of Grow Groups.
“Grief Share”

“The Marriage You’ve Always Wanted” 
7PM – Schumske Home
811 Hillview Dr. Herkimer, NY
Led by Pastor Chris Schumske
Happiness in marriage is not automatic. You can experience true unity, emotionally and practically, by taking the first steps toward the marriage you’ve always wanted.
7pm – Cammarere Home
111 Sunrise Ct. Frankfort, NY
Led by Mark Cammarere
This Grow Group is for college aged students. To better address the secularism that seems rampant on college campuses today, we offer the POINT (Power Over the INtolerance of Tolerance) small group. In addition to representing the church’s next generation, you Christian men and women are increasingly on the front line (the POINT) of the culture war. Knowledge of why a Christian world view makes sense will allow them not only to defend their beliefs (1 Peter 3:15), but also to turn the tables (since many others may not have thought out the reasons for their beliefs either). The topics we address will be in an unstructured way (no syllabus) – probably with the ebb and flow of our conversations from week to week. The goal of POINT will be to pursue knowledge (an accurately informed mind – loving Jesus and loving people in the context of Matthew 23:37-38), wisdom (an artful method – extending grace) and character (an attractive manner – pursuing holiness) in a relational, interactive and stimulating way (at least, that’s the hope!). Come join us in the Sonlight!
