How Do I Meet People?

3Strands is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at 3Strands.

Small Group

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, 3Strands has small bible studies held in member homes. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study.  For more small group information contact Bill Avila (his contact info is on the staff page).

Youth Ministry

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. 

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The Forge is our young adult group at 3Strands and it provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.  The Forge meets Sunday evenings at 6pm.

Women’s Group

3Strands Women’s Group gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.  Check the calendar for their next meet. 

Men’s  Group

The men’s group meets the third Saturday of each month and not only do we tear into some awesome food we dig into God’s Word and discover how to walk as a man of God.  Check the calendar for their next meeting.  

Prayer Group

This group meets on the first Sunday of each month from 7 to 8:30pm for worship and prayer. (check the calendar for any changes.) Dave & Ann Cummings host this group at their home in Fountain Inn. The group starts with a time of praise & worship led by Dave playing guitar; then continues with a great time of prayer. Contact Dave at for more information or directions.
