Woman’s Bible Study

Every Tuesday, we offer a Women’s Bible Study designed to help women become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Gather together with other women and enjoy a great discussion. No homework required! Women of all ages are welcome to attend every Tuesday morning at 10am. Childcare is NOT provided. Come and be a part of a fun and friendly group of women who are inspired to seek, know and follow after God. For more information please call Donna Kusche at (618) 977-9383.

Spring Study Series

Please join us for our Spring Study Series every other Tuesday from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. We are going to start where we left off on our last session so we’ll be diving right into the book of James! We will be at Tonya & Pat Shelton’s house located at 413 Carroll Dr. in Pontoon Beach, IL. As always, we will serve coffee and...more coffee. Snacks are always welcome! In addition, if you need childcare please contact Tonya at (618) 530-2316.

“United” is a young adult community (20’s, 30’s & early 40’s) that has a vision to allow God to facilitate a fun environment where we can come together in fellowship and explore our God given gifts and His word. We believe God not only wants a strong relationship with each of us but also desires that we have strong relationship with each other.. All the shifts and changes in life make it hard for relationships to stand, but we believe Jesus is our firm foundation and he has given us the Bible to use as a manual to build strong relationships that will not fail. This group will not only benefit our members but also others out in the world that will see the light coming from these people “United” in Christ. Please call Tonya Shelton at 618-530-2316 if you would like to attend our next United event!
