The mission of the Adult ministry at St. Michael’s is to help people grow and be transformed in their faith in Jesus Christ, to equip them for service through His Word and the Holy Spirit so that we have unity in the Body of Christ, to become a witness to those around us.


…to prepare God’s people for God’s works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. -Ephesians 4:12-14

Women of St. Michael’s: We Want to Hear from You!

As some of you may know, our Christian Moms Fellowship (CMF) ended last spring. Since that time, we have not had a women’s group at St. Michael’s.

St. Michael’s currently offers two women’s Bible studies, an annual women’s breakfast and an annual women’s retreat; however, we would also like to refresh our women’s group and what it has to offer to the congregation.

And we want to hear from you.

Please fill out this short two-minute survey to help us shape our new women’s group at SMLC.

Save the Date: WOMENS RETREAT April 13-15, 2018 You don’t want to miss it!!!
