WHEN/WHERE WE MEET

 

Wednesday RBCY


Meeting every Wednesday - 6:30 - 8:00 pm (groups start night together in the “JAR”)

Come, hangout. There will be games, Bible lesson, & small groups.

HIGH SCHOOL: BSFL. The Dark Side - There is real evil in the world today, and we experience brokenness in real ways. But there’s good news—God teaches us about our enemy and his weaknesses.

MIDDLE SCHOOL: TGP. The Story Begins - A walk through the book of Genesis where students will encounter key figures and events, seeing how all of them uniquely point to Christ in their own way.


Sunday School


Every Sunday - 9:30 am in the “JAR”

We are working through the book of Revelations. We will be challenged not only with what God has in store for us in the futures, but how that affects our lives today.


Small Groups


Every 3rd Sunday (Times and locations vary based on small group)

Small Group Sundays are your chance to connect with your small group over food and some Bible discussion. These are great times to ask questions and talk about life with your friends and leaders.
