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 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!

Sunday Morning Groups
 
Starting Sunday, September 17
 
2 Samuel
2 Samuel leaves us with an appreciation for the greatness of David, but also a realization of his human weaknesses. If there is to be a king who will dwell forever on the throne of David, it must be one who is greater than David. If David is the best king who ever ruled over Israel, then God will have to provide, Himself, a better King.

Be Like Jesus
The goal of the Christian life isn’t to ‘be saved’ and ‘go to heaven.’  The goal is to Be Like Jesus. As we become ever more like Jesus, our lives better fit into the big picture of what God is doing in the world. Join us as we study scripture that show how to think, act, and be like Jesus.

Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times
You’ll get through this, whatever “this” is, financial woes, relationship valleys, health crisis? Let’s face it: life is tough sometimes, and it’s easy to wonder where GOD is in the middle of a struggle. When times are tough we all could use some reassurance and Max hits that head-on. No matter how bleak our reality, remember GOD is bigger still.
