Looking for more than just a Sunday morning sermon?
Check out these ways to get involved.
The women’s group is an integral part of the church. We spend time every Wednesday night singing a handful of songs, praying for the needs of church members and studying the Bible together. Paul writes in 1 Cor. 16:14, “Let all that you do be done with love.” Whether working together on potlucks, studying the Bible, or visiting those in need, our prayer is that Jesus will be made known and the church strengthened. We hope you will join us!
Children's Sunday school
The purpose of our Sunday School is to teach the children the truth about Jesus Christ found in the Bible. We are confident that children at any age can learn how to seek and find Jesus for their own lives. Kids are such an important part of the church—we encourage them to serve God in the church and be prepared to live with Him in heaven forever.
Every Sunday morning, the Sunday School teachers give age-appropriate Bible-based lessons. One of the kids’ favorite times is the kid-focused praise time. The children sing easy and fun songs that teach the Bible, and are encouraged to play their instruments.
There are three groups of children in the church:
Children: 3-6 years old
Intermediates: 7-10 years old
Adolescents: 11-14 years old
"But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:1
Youth Bible Study
The teenagers in the church get together on Saturday nights before the prayer service to study the Bible together. The teens are some of life’s most formative years, and we encourage thoughtful inquiry into the Bible to answer life’s tough questions.
After the sunday morning service
Each church member is a part of a small group that we call a group of assistance. We call them that because the group members pray for each other. When there is a need, a group will come together to visit one of their group members during the week. The groups are small and intended to be the place where new members and converts are integrated into the church.
At Maranatha, congregational worship is part of our core identity. The praise group’s role is to lead the congregation in Christ-centered joyful group worship. The only requirement for the types of songs we sing is that they enthrone Jesus as King. We sing both traditional hymns and contemporary Christian music, as well as songs that have been written by church members.
