Wednesday Night Gathering:

   During the school year, we meet on Wednesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall for dinner. College students, youth and children eat free!  Youth activities and children's activities begin at 6 p.m. on the top floor.  There are several adult bible studies to choose from.  Dr. Jay presents a Bible study in Fellowship Hall, while a ladies Bible study group meets in the Library.  A parenting study meets in the Chapel.  The Nursery is also available on the second floor if needed.  All are welcome!



Lifetree Cafe:

LifetreeCafe_logo_4c_tagLifetree Cafe is a free hour of stories and conversation in a relaxed, coffeehouse setting.  It is a place and time for people to gather to explore life and faith.  Each week participants view original videos on a variety of topics and spend time discussing their thoughts and opinions on that week's topic.  Lifetree's motto is "You're welcome just as you are.  Your thoughts are welcome. Your doubts are welcome.  We're all in this together.  God is here, ready to connect with you in a fresh way."

It is not a Sunday school class and it is not a worship service.  Lifetree is a unique experience where people can grapple with real life issues. You do not have to be a member of State Street or any other church to participate in Lifetree.  Everyone is welcome here!


Lifetree Cafe is open on Sunday mornings from 9 - 10 am.  We hope to see you there.
