Growth Groups

We are a church of Growth Groups, and we pray for 105 percent participation! That means we'd love to see all of our church family plus others in our community joining in our groups because this is where real relationships happen. This is where we spend time digging into God's Word, discussing how to live Christ-centered lives, sharing our trials, seeking support, holding each other accountable, and praying together.

Growth Groups are how we grow individually and as a church. We also encourage every group to serve together and do a fun activity. Our Growth Groups are on a quarterly system. Signups for winter quarter are in January. Spring signups are in April. Fall signups are held in August, with the semester beginning in September. Some groups take the summer off but others meet beginning in June. During signups, we'll post group options online, and you can either submit your choice online or stop by our Growth Groups table on Sunday mornings.

If you have more questions about Growth Groups, contact Pastor Isaac.

Men's Ministry

Our desire is to help men grow in relationship with one another and God so they are connected, accountable, compassionate members of our church and community. Men who embrace the Great Commandment of loving God and loving others are able to serve as role models and leaders at home, church, and work, as well as in the broader context of the world. "The things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others" 2 Timothy 2:2.

The men of Antelope Springs regularly meet together to enjoy fellowship while studying the Bible and worshiping our Lord and Savior. We hold a Men's Breakfast once a month and host On-Sight Shooting events throughout the year. We also go on a weekend retreat each spring and continually seek opportunities to serve together as we fulfill God's purpose for our lives.

Visit the calendar page to check on events, and if you have questions about Men's Ministry, send us an email.

Women's Ministry

Our Women's Ministry at Antelope Springs is purposeful in accordance with Mark 12:30, "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."

We gather together to support and serve alongside one another as we learn, grow, and discover God's purpose for our lives. Activities all through the year give us opportunities to connect and build God-honoring relationships where we can encourage each other and find joy as we love and pursue Him and others. We also believe it is our responsibility to share time growing in spiritual knowledge and love of the Lord.

Each year, we plan a variety of fun events that bring us together both at the church and in the community. Visit the calendar page to see upcoming events and email our Director of Women's Ministry with any questions. You are also invited to stop by our information kiosk on Sundays to pick up an annual Women's Ministry schedule and join us anytime!

Love & Fellowship Ministry for 50+

We invite anyone 50 and older to join us in fellowship and service activities throughout the year. This is a wonderful way to use our wisdom, time, and experience to grow God's Kingdom. As senior adults, we have the ability--and the responsibility-- to love God and others, show compassion to those in need, and teach the world about Jesus.

At Antelope Springs, we hold dinner gatherings for senior adults on the fourth Friday of most months. Our get-togethers may include theme nights, testimonies, guest speakers, hymns, games, devotionals, and outings. We also work with other ministries to support them in their activities and events. Our Love & Fellowship Ministry strives to WORSHIP together in weekly church services to honor and glorify God. We REACH out to the community with support for our other ministries. We CONNECT with the youth, young adults, and others through various programs. We continually GROW by attending Sunday school classes, adult Bible studies, and dedicated time in reading the Word. We SERVE other ministries by volunteering when and where needed. If you'd like more information, email our ministry coordinator. Look for coming events on our calendar page.

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34 (NIV)

Celebrate Recovery — Every Saturday

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program to free us from hurts, hang-ups, and habits like weight issues, stress, substance abuse, relationship struggles, co-dependency, grief, anger, gambling, and more. When we surrender our lives to Jesus, He will show us the way with love and hope, combined with God’s purpose.

Celebrate Recovery, held every Saturday evening at 6 p.m., is a safe and confidential place to work through our struggles using the Road to Recovery in combination with 12 steps and their biblical comparisons.

We first meet in large group, and then break into women’s and men’s small groups to talk about life issues. Finally, we gather together for Solid Rock Café, a time to visit and enjoy coffee and refreshments. During large and small group time, free childcare is available for children ages 6 months and older. Please be encouraged and come to Celebrate Recovery this week!
