In God’s design, He created us for relationships with Him and with others. While there many ways to grow in loving God and loving all people, the primary way is through gathering with others and following Christ together. In fact, that is one of the fastest ways that we grow more like Christ and learn the heart habits and life lessons in our journey with Jesus.
 
We believe when you gather with a group of friends with God at the center for a meal, a campfire, Bible study or whatever to do life together, you actually are living the way that God designed and desires for us.
 
God desires for us to gather and grow in our knowledge and understanding of His Word and His ways so that we “may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, and being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that we may have great endurance and patience” to live as a people who are loving God, loving all people and follow Christ together.   Join a new group or class today and make some new friends along the way!

Wednesday Group

 PRAYER – An Adventure With God
In this study we will be looking at the prayers of great men and women of the Bible with an emphasis on why we pray. By understanding the importance of prayer in the outworking of God’s plans and also how it can change us we will be motivated to pray differently. We will also spend significant time in prayer for our own needs and also for the needs of other people in our lives to put into practice what we are learning.

Romans
Our culture does not encourage thoughtful reflection on truth.  Yet living the gospel in a postmodern culture demands that Christians understand and internalize the truth about God and His plan for the world.

Lucado does a brilliant job at reminding us about the baggage we carry with us on a daily basis. He then shares with us God’s word and the reassuring peace that comes with it.
