The Collective - Ladies Event
October 21st - December 9th, 2016
The Collective is a gathering for worship, teaching and prayer. Hosted by the Ladies Ministry at In Focus Church, The Collective will meet five times in 2016 as an extension of all God is doing in and through In Focus Church.
We believe every lady is valuable, significant and loved by God. We know that God’s purpose and plan for each person on the planet is sure and dependable. No matter your age, background, status, where you have been or where you are going...YOU are welcome at The Collective. We want you to find a place to belong, rest, and grow with Jesus and one another.
We desire for The Collective to be a time where ladies will encounter God and His love, hear the truth of God and sense His grace, experience freedom in worship and fellowship, and enjoy building friendship with other ladies in our community
The Collective welcomes ladies high school age and older to attend-no registration is required.
Doors open at 6:30pm for fellowship.
Our desire is for all ladies to attend The Collective without hindrances and distractions. This is why we ask that no children or babies be brought in to this event. Thank you for complying with this request. However, if you are a single mom or the wife of a deployed spouse, we'd like to offer you childcare for this event. Please email Patti Lechner at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

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
November 13th, 2016
This class is full. Be looking for a class during the winter semester.
Open to married or engaged couples.
Ordinary marriages become exciting! Great marriages become exceptional! Feel the passion and excitement of a newlywed again!
Dynamic Marriage doesn't just teach you; it'll change you.
Dynamic Marriage takes you and your spouse on an insightful journey to discover each other's innermost emotional needs and expectations. Based on the "Love Bank" model from the book, His Needs, Her Needs by Dr. Willard Harley, you'll learn how communication and behavior styles affect the way you and your spouse act and react to each other.
In Dynamic Marriage You Learn How to…
*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
*Negotiate rather than argue
*Manage your anger and work through conflicts together
This course is $150 per couple and includes trained facilitator instruction, the 9-session kit and childcare. If you have any questions, concerns or needs for partial scholarship, contact Becky at email@example.com or (706) 421-7663.

The Beginning and Connected - Membership Class
November 13th - November 20th, 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.

Foster Care Information Meeting
November 13th, 2016
Have you ever wondered how you could get involved with local foster kids? In 2015, the Augusta area had over 300 children taken into the foster care system with less than 30 foster homes open to receive kids. We believe that the local church should be the solution to this problem, so in 2014, Foster Focus, the foster care ministry of In Focus Church, was born, and we believe we've just scratched the surface of what God has called us to do. So please join us for an informational meeting on Sunday, November 13 from 6-8pm in the youth room.
This meeting is hosted by Foster Focus and Uniting Hope 4 Children, a faith-based non-profit that recruits, trains, and encourages foster families.

Find Your People, Find Your Purpose is our theme for the school year. We love college students and we are passionate about introducing students to a life transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
Find Your People - We were created for relationship with God and others. We believe that God has spiritual community for all believers; a place of safety where we can know others and be known.
Find Your Purpose - At ENC we also believe that God has a purpose and destiny for every single person. We want to help you discern the plans God has for you - most of which will take place in the context of authentic community.
For more information, you may contact the ENC Campus leader, Alli Townsend, at 404-583-7746 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on the 30th!
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.

Real Men Fight!
The Loaned Manger-Christmas Musical
December 14th, 2016
The Loaned Manger is a fun and high-spirited look at Christmas through the lens of the Wild West in the late 1800’s. In the small western town of Incarnation, Christmas is celebrated with grit, giddy-up, and gusto! The townsfolk like to think of themselves as “the most Christmassy town in the West.” So round up some rambunctious cowpokes and join us on December 14 at 7pm, for the rowdiest Christmas musical of the year!
December 25th, 2016
We believe that God powerfully uses prayer to transform people, circumstances, our church, our nation, and the world! If you have a heart to pray, please join us each Sunday morning at 7:30 am in Room J in the Kids Wing at In Focus Church.
No registration required!
ENCOUNTER 2017 - A Victory Weekend Experience
August 25th, 2017
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.
