    Men

    It’s important for men to connect with and challenge one other in life, family, and ministry.  These days manhood is defined in confusing ways, but God's Word offers clarity and direction, and discovering that in community is our goal with men. Together we'll build each other up, have real conversations about the things that really matter, and strengthen each other to become the men God has created us to be.

    Women

    Women are pulled in many different directions these days. There are internal and external expectations that weary our hearts, minds, and bodies. Whether you are a full-time employee, full-time at home, or looking for your next life step, your hours are full. So wherever you find yourself, we want to come alongside and encourage you in your relationship with Jesus and others.

    Entrusted

    • Wednesday, begins September 13
    • 9:15-11:15am, Room 104
    • Cost: $13

    We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.

    In this 6-session Bible study, Beth Moore will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.

    The Book of Jonah

    • Friday, begins September 8
    • 10am-Noon, Room 207
    • Free

    At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God's grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?

    Over the course of 8 verse-by-verse sessions, pastor and author Eric Mason expands our vision to see that Jonah's story is our own. Far more than a thrilling Sunday school adventure, it offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of His compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but redeeming those He has called to participate in His reconciling work.

    Groups

    When we deepen our friendships, we deepen our faith. One of our priorities is helping people connect in small groups, classes/studies, and special interest groups. 

    • Small Groups focus on friendship, prayer, and bible study and entail a longer term investment. Some groups also find ways to serve together. 
    • Classes/Studies focus for a shorter season (4-12 weeks) on a specific topic (financial health, marriage enrichment, spiritual growth, biblical archaeology, etc.)
    • Special Interest groups range in length and subject matter.  Some are activity-driven and seasonal, some address a stage of life, some focus on a special cause (Hiking, Human Trafficking Awareness, Aviation, Caring for aging parents, etc.)
