We have a variety of ministries available for adults at all stages, from young adults to seniors. LIFE groups, Prime Timers, and Sunday morning focus groups, as well as service activities, to help adults connect to others and grow in their walks with Christ. In addition, throughout the year, women’s and men’s events offer large-group opportunities. We offer retreats for men, women, and families on a rotating basis.
Focus groups for adults meet Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. or 10:45 a.m. The groups provide teaching on a variety of topics or a book of the Bible, all selected to foster spiritual growth. These classes are for anyone who wants to learn more about God and how to have a relationship with Him. They provide a safe place to discuss and ask questions and learn more about the Bible.
LIFE groups are a great way to connect at GCN. Groups are geared to young adults, couples with young children, men, women, singles, and couples at all stages of life. The groups cover a variety of topics on a 12-week semester basis and meet on different days of the week at homes or at the church. In addition to studying God’s Word and praying for each other, each LIFE group may participate in a service project and enjoy a fun, social time together. Our desire is that LIFE groups will provide a place for each participant to connect to others and grow as followers of Jesus Christ. To find a group and sign up, click here.
Prime Timers, our senior adult group, offers opportunities to connect to others and grow as followers of Jesus Christ. In addition to joining a LIFE group or a Sunday morning focus group, our Prime Timers participate in bi-monthly outings and other events. These include lunches at restaurants and trips to museums, as well as an annual white elephant Christmas party. Each Prime Timers event also offers an opportunity to serve, such as donating school supplies to a local community or canned goods for Gaithersburg HELP.
