Paula, Jeff, Marion, and Calvin bring years of experience with Biblical teaching, preaching, and singing to the table, but the exciting part will be seeing what GOD has to say in and through all of our group members!

Bald Hill Group (Children Welcome)
The Bald Hill Group is mostly lead and hosted by Casey & Lee Anne Buck, and we are a group that meets every Saturday evening at 5:00 pm. As as a group we typically have a common meal with everyone contributing a delicious dish, and then we follow up by studying the Bible. Most recently we've studied I, II, and III John, Jude, and I Thessalonians. We usually finish our evening with prayer and fellowship, and everybody for the most part just hangs out until they get tired and go home. Not only do we study the word together, but we also tend to do things outside of Saturday evening time; we have joined in ministry efforts together, camped and RV'd together, worked on projects together, etc. Most of the people in our group are in their 40's, 50's, and 60's. We have new people join us every couple of months, and we welcome new attenders, even if you just want to visit to get a taste of how small groups work within our church. To contact us for more information please send us an e-mail at Cbuckeroo@yahoo.com.
