*Truly commit to your spouse and your marriage

*Experience love at a deeper level of intimacy

*Love one another in the way you each need to be loved

*Talk to your spouse in a way they'll really listen and hear you

Beginning

The Beginning and Connected - Membership Class

August 29th - November 26th, 2016

This group is reserved for those currently in the church membership process.

The Beginning is a helpful step for new disciples. During this five-session study, participants will explore the foundations of following Jesus and find answers to the kinds of questions all disciples ask, including:

-What does it mean to become a disciple of Jesus?

-How do I make Jesus the center of my life?

-How do I connect with God in a deep and personal way?

-What does my relationship with Jesus look like in community?

-How do I model Jesus in my everyday life?

After completing The Beginning, we will dive in to CONNECTED: My Life in the Church.

This study gives you biblical understanding of what it means to be a part of the body of Christ. It examines important connections like service, growth, and prayer.

Serve

SERVE Week - Reaching our community with the love of Jesus.

November 12th - November 19th, 2016

We desire for service to become part of our lives as a natural outflow of our walk with Jesus. In our quest to become more like Him, we reach out to our community and serve and love in practical ways during specific times throughout the year. As a church, we clear the calendar and focus on reaching out and serving others corporately in order to have the greatest impact!

Our next SERVE Week is November 12-19, but don't wait to serve selflessly! You can be the hands and feet of Jesus any day. Look for opportunities to serve others, just like Jesus served you

The arena main design

The Arena

December 2nd, 2016

The Arena is an opportunity for men to gather together in a relaxed setting to have fun, build relationships, and worship together.

We believe that all men have ‘fight’ in their hearts. It’s how we were made. The question is, what are we fighting for? A mercenary fights for his own benefit, but a warrior fights for a cause bigger than himself. We are called, as Christians, to be warriors for the sake of the Gospel.

Our hope is that while in The Arena, you will experience the depth of God’s love for you, as well as sense the urgency of the battle at hand for our own lives, our families, and our fellow brothers.

1 Timothy 6:11-12 says, "But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession before many witnesses.”

The Arena is open to all men, including high school juniors and seniors. Registration not required. Mark your calendar now! Doors open at 6:30pm.

Encounter

ENCOUNTER 2017 - A Victory Weekend Experience

August 25th, 2017

$10

Do you ever feel like you want to go deeper in your walk with God? Is there a freedom that you desire to have in your life but at every turn you feel like there is a blockade? Do you long to be a disciple of Christ, not just a convert?

This 24 hour experience is a powerful time of teaching, worship, prayer and personal ministry.

Our desire at In Focus is that every church member would attend and participate in an ENCOUNTER weekend at some point. This event is a wonderful tool for anyone in their discipleship process.

This event takes place only once a year. The next scheduled event is August 25 and 26. Ask your small group leader for more information.

Please note, the deadline for registrations is Thursday, August 17 at noon.
