Prayer Hour SM-resized
Prayer Hour:
We must become a house of prayer where praying is not merely one of the things we do but the foundation and power source of the church! We have prayer church-wide, for both children and adults. Come do the most effective work you can do for God’s kingdom!

Small Group Opportunities:
At The Water’s Edge we believe that small groups are critically important to growing in Christ and thus we now offer three different types to meet the various needs of our congregation: Discipleship Groups (small groups of 10-15 people meeting weekly for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer), DNA Groups (smaller groups of 2-4 people of the same gender meeting weekly for prayer, Bible study, encouragement, and accountability), and 1 on 1 Discipleship Relationships (where a more mature follower of Christ meets weekly with a less mature follower of Christ to focus on their specific questions and needs and help show them the way). If you are interested in any of these let Pastor Erik know today!
                          Discipleship Groups are the heart and soul of what we do at The Water’s Edge. If you want to get connected, get involved, and grow in your faith, then you need to join a Discipleship Group today. Discipleship Groups are small groups that meet every week, on various nights, in people’s homes and at the church. We’re always adding people to the groups, so if you’re interested or have questions, let us know!
 
The Lincoln Park Hope Center:
The Hope Center is a unique ministry opportunity supported by The Water’s Edge Church.  Made possible through volunteers and the financial support and leadership of a local four church cooperative, the Hope Center’s mission is to meet the needs of those in our community in Jesus’ name.  They seek to do this by providing for material needs including clothing, furniture, housewares, etc., through donations they receive, to offer homework help to children, and to be a bridge for those in need to local churches and for local churches to those in need.  The Hope Center aims to be a hope-filled gathering place where people can meet Jesus, be helped, and be a help to others.  If you have interest in volunteering, donating, or finding out more about the ministry, visit their website

Dive-Team-SM-Resized
DIVE Team:
An important part of discipleship, especially for teens, is meeting together to build relationships, study the word, pray for, and  encourage one another. That’s what we do every Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at The Water’s Edge. If you’re in 6th grade or older we hope you’ll come join us!
