Studying all four of these books provides a rich opportunity to learn about our Savior, understand His design for us, and grow in living for His glory. Join us as we study The Life of Christ together and look to make the most of Jesus in our lives.

  • Plain Talk

    Plain Talk

    Plain Talk: Experiencing Candid Prayer is a class for people who believe in prayer. For people who want to pray. But when it comes down to it, don't pray all that much. It's a class for busy people, frightened people, or frustrated people. For people who feel guilty. Or inept. Or bewildered. It's for people who feel stuck or stale. It's for the weary soldier or the new believer. It's for everyone who ever wanted to fly on eagle's wings but find themselves hugging the cliff. There is no formula. There is no recipe. There is only limitless, scandalous, life-changing power and a God who wants to talk.

    This class is a women's study group.

  • Saturday Morning Men's Group

    Saturday Morning Men's Group

    The Saturday Morning Men's Group is a place to learn how to become a man after God's own heart, grow in authentic relationship with Christ, and develop accountability with the men around you. Starting on May 19, we begin a new study, a Wiersbe Bible Study Series: Minor Prophets, Vol 1.

    The books of the Minor Prophets span 450 years. These 12 books reveal the character, nature and heart of God. Volume 1 goes through six Minor Prophets, including Hosea, Joel, Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Malachi. As you go through this study, expect to gain a new perspective on how God’s plans and purposes intersect in the lives of those who serve Him.
