Abide is a ministry for married couples with teenage children. Our focus is to help couples grow in their faith, in their marriage, and even in their parenting.
We meet regularly on Wednesday nights from September through May for fellowship, teaching, and small groups, in addition to occasional activities and small group fellowships.
Abide Fall 2019-2020
Abide is primarily a Compass Small Group ministry where we discuss application questions from the weekend sermon. Being a ministry for married couples with teenagers, we are able to discuss and apply these sermons to our current situations in life, marriage and parenting. At the same time, Abide is more than a traditional Compass Small Group because it consists of many small groups that all gather in the same place at the same time—and who all just so happen to be in similar seasons of life. For this reason, we are able to have special sermons on occasion that target specific issues in marriage and parenting.
A typical Abide night will consist of dinner, a sermon (either a recap of Pastor Mike’s weekend sermon OR a special sermon), and then small groups. Our junior high and high school ministries will be meeting at the same time in their own small groups on campus.
