KNOW LOVE BECOME HOUR  (at 11am)
 
What’s your next step as we’re getting in shape as a fellowship? We have exciting new courses for you to participate in during our 11am Know Love Become Hour. These courses are structured to help our families Catch the Wave and form healthy relationships with God and one another.
BIBLE 101
Leaders:  Ben Copeland and Pastor Andrew in Room 214

Are you rooted in God’s Word?
We believe there is life in God’s Word. Whether you’re familiar with the Bible or just getting started, join us for a 9 week introductory course. We will start with the basic structure and history of the Bible, move toward how to study it and then apply it to our lives as we help each other Know, Love, and Become like Jesus Christ.
 FOLLOWING CHRIST
Leaders:  Pastor Justin and Scott Brown in Fellowship Hall

Do you hear Christ’s call on your life?
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24 
This kind of sacrificial living is what Christ called us to and is how He lived his life. Each week this course will explore one of nine scriptural character studies and how they interacted with Christ’s radical call on their lives. Join us as we try to answer the question, “what does it mean to follow Jesus?” 
  NEW     LIVING IT OUT
Taught each week by one of our Elders in the 
Narthex

Are looking looking for practical ways to live out the weekly message?
This weekly discussion and prayer course will be led by one of our Elders and will be based around Sunday’s morning message.
FOR NURSERY & TODDLERS
For our littlest ones, they will be cared for and nurtured by our loving adults and helpers in Room 215. This allows all parents to attend our Worship Service at 9:30am AND our Know Love Become Hour without worry  or distractions.
FOR KIDS
Our Preschool thru 2nd Grade course will explore “God’s Top 10 List”.  The 3rd thru 6th Graders will learn about, “The Amazing Grace of God”. Each group’s lessons include games, songs, crafts or activities around whatever the Bible story is that day. Our goal is that every child will be exposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in creative ways that they can understand, respond to and grow in.
FOR TEENS
This Fall, our Junior an Senior High will be learning to Know, Love and Become like Jesus by studying the Gospel of John. “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus Is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”  John 20:31  John’s purpose statement is our prayer for our students taking this course—that they would believe, and by believing have LIFE in Christ!

LADIES’ TUESDAY MORNINGS at 9am
Led by Darla Hummel
TUESDAY MORNINGS is a multi-generational group of ladies that meet on Tuesdays from 9am-11am in Room 214. The group is studying a book by Dr. David Jeremiah called “Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World” . This book shows us how we can live with confidence in this age of turmoil when we call upon the power and love of Almighty God. Dr. Jeremiah answers our most urgent questions, including:
  • How can we weather this storm with a calm heart?
  • What does it truly mean to “wait on the Lord”?
  • What is Jesus saying to our chaotic world today?
  • How on earth did we get into this mess?
  • Can we take a broken world and rebuild it into something fruitful?

Our college-aged/young adult ministry meets the first three Sundays after church and at 6:30pm on the 4th Sunday in various homes.
 
Our high-paced, quickly changing world has so much to offer us. There is a seemingly unending list of ways we can spend our time. But, with all of these options and offerings, it can be difficult to find opportunities for truly meaningful connections. Having relationships built on the truth of God’s Word offers us a strength that is uncommon. As we figure out the next steps in life, we need those authentic connections more than ever. We strive to connect to each other and to God. So whether you meet with us each week, have never met with us before, or used to participate in a Christian community but don’t any longer…would you stay connected?
