Growing in Grace and Knowledge

The goal of our Adult Ministry programs is bringing people together so they may grow in their knowledge of Jesus Christ, enjoy fellowship, and be ambassadors of God's love among our members and in the community.

Contact our church office at 705-743-4904 (Tuesday-Friday, 8 am-noon), for more information about the programs below.

  • The Rock Cafe

    Come join us for a FREE coffee time on Monday mornings from 9-11 a.m. The Rock Cafe is a welcoming space we make available to our community members. We serve lots of hot coffee, tea and home made treats. A great opportunity to meet others over a cup of java and enjoy conversation and laughter.

  • Mary and Martha (Women's group for all ages)

    Mary and Martha are two women in the Gospels who have different personalities but the same devotion to Jesus. All women are welcome to participate in this group that focuses on Bible study and fellowship. Group outings and social events are also on the agenda! This group meets in Cephas Church every other Tuesday @ 9:45 am.

    Mary & Martha resumes on January 9, 2024. 

  • Young@Heart Ministry for Retirees

    Retirees of every age are invited to join our Young@Heart for fellowship, discussion on topics of interest, guest speakers, and special outings. This group meets in the Fellowship Hall at Cephas Church where coffee and goodies are generously served. This is a joint program with Living Hope Church. Young@Heart meets on the first Thursday of each month @ 10 am.

    Young@Heart resumes on January 4, 2024. 

  • Dinner with Friends

    Men and women gather in the kitchen each month to prepare a new dish together. Learn to cook exotic meals from Dutch pancakes with bacon and apples, to Indonesian rice and noodle dishes - no experience necessary! Leaders rotate and show how to prepare a different recipe in each class, which is enjoyed by the group. The cost of the food is shared ($5.00 pp).  The next class begins its new season on Monday, October 16th at 4:30 pm in the downstairs kitchen.

  • Breakfast Social at Smitty's

    All ladies and men are invited to enjoy breakfast on the first Monday of every month at Smitty's restaurant on George Street. The focus of this time is to experience fellowship and friendship with each other. All ages are welcome!

    This group gathers at Smitty's on the first Wednesday of each month @ 9 am.

  • Members of One Body

    Cephas Church is a community of believers who show God's love to one another. This is done through hosting Coffee Socials after the worship service each week, supporting new moms and members in the hospital through a Care Network, and upholding those with concerns and prayer requests in our Prayer Network.

    If you feel called to help out in a ministry supporting our church members, contact the church office at 705-743-4904.
