family fellowship night

Family Fellowship Night is the Wednesday night programming at our church. This night is designed for everyone to join together in fellowship! We have a meal together at 5:30pm in the Legacy Hall, prepared by some wonderful members of our church. Then at 6:30pm we break into small groups, with groups for adults, youth, and children. You can click on the image link for more specific information and to see what small groups we currently have!


Our church has a large number of adult groups that meet on a monthly or weekly basis! There are groups who meet for prayer and Bible study, and others who simply gather for a meal. You can be sure that whatever you are looking for, you will find a ministry that fits you! Click on the image link to explore all of our groups and what they have to offer!


Our children's ministry, Clarkesville Kids, is designed for children from birth to 5th grade, with age appropriate options for every age!
