The Beginning and Connected - Membership Class
August 28th - November 13th, 2017
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.

The Arena 2017 - Men's Event
October 20th - December 1st, 2017
The Arena is an opportunity for men to gather together in a relaxed setting to have fun, build relationships, and worship together. All events are held on Friday nights.
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 at 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!
