How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.

Bible Classes

Often, Bible classes allow people to better interact and learn about the bible in a group setting. For that reason, our church has Bible class opportunities on Sunday mornings starting at 9:30am and Wednesday evenings starting at 7:00pm. We have Bible classes for all ages and you’re sure to find one you love at 9th and Elm!

Youth Ministry

We have a great group of 6th-12th grade students at 9th and Elm who would love to welcome your students to our youth ministry program! From Bible classes to monthly hang outs to summer camps and missions trips, our youth ministry is dedicated to seeing our students a strong faith of their own in Jesus Christ.

Women’s Groups

Women’s groups give the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Currently these groups include:
 – Women’s Sewing Circle which meets every Tuesday at 10am to enjoy sewing and fellowshipping together.
 – Sisters of Service which meets every Wednesday at 9am to enjoy a few hours of service together.

Men’s Prayer Breakfast

On the second Saturday of every month the men of our congregation gather at the IHS building at 8am to share a good breakfast, spend time in prayer, and hear a good message from a rotating cast of men in the congregation. This prayer breakfast is an excellent way to get involved with the men of the church and allow them an opportunity to fellowship together. Bacon is always provided.


Our Keenagers group is a wild bunch of retirees that gather together on the first Friday of the month to share a meal and enjoy playing board games, dominoes, doing puzzles, and being in each other’s company.

Visitation Team

Our Visitation Team meets every Tuesday at 9:30am to head out to the homes of our members who, for various reasons, aren’t able to attend our services. Each week they spend time visiting and praying with these members and ensuring that they feel part of our church family even when they cannot attend.
