Over 80 women participate in six Women’s Circles which meet monthly. These caring communities of women nurture faith through friendship, prayer, Bible study, community outreach, and worldwide mission support and activities. In order to accommodate the various needs and lifestyles of participants, each Circle’s meeting time and day is different.
Men are invited to enjoy breakfast at 8:00 a.m. at the Sugar Hill Diner on the second Saturday of each month. The food is always good as well as the camaraderie. Men of all ages are invited. There is typically a brief program of some sort that is aimed at men and their spiritual concerns. This group is also an ongoing supporter of the Boy Scout troop that meets on our church campus.
Another informal men's group meets on Friday mornings at 7:00 a.m. at the Chick-fil-A on Peachtree Industrial Blvd. at Moore Rd. in Suwanee. If you would like to get on the email list for that group, please contact the church office.
