Growing in Our Love for God
Sunday Morning Classes
Before the service on Sundays from 8:30-9:30 AM, we hold classes to provide a context to further equip and grow in understanding of biblical truths in order to live well as disciples. A variety of classes are offered to better understand the Bible, theology, church history, the Christian life, church life, cultural engagement, and being on mission. Teenagers and up are welcome to attend. Come join us as we study God’s Word and learn how to be disciples.
Intro to Church History:The Early Years
As people who have been redeemed by the gospel and have entered into a union with Christ’s people, we want to understand the people we are now a part of. The gospel has created a people that spans races, times, cultures, and borders and in order to know who we are and where we come from we must study our rich historical tapestry. So, each August over the next several years we will be taking a look at different eras in church history to better understand our past and be better prepared to live in the present. Please join for the first class in this series on August 5.
There is no preparation required though there will be supplemental church history reading that can be done along the way to give a more robust learning experience.

An intense small group setting where participants experience the love of God shining into some of life’s darkest areas of sin and suffering. Redemption Groups opens with examining Exodus, the story of God bringing the Israelites from slavery to freedom. Afterwards is a time for breakout groups designed to point participants to Christ as our Redeemer in our current life struggles. Transparency, honesty, and authenticity are highly encouraged and modeled. The hope for those who participate in RGs is that they experience the love of Christ and His people in fresh, transformative ways leading to spiritual renewal and revival.
The course is offered annually and held each time over two weekends. When: August 2-4, 9-12
