Open class - meeting in the CFC - main

The Gospel of John: “The Gospel of Light in a Dark World” study by Tony Evans.

Despite what our culture may argue, there is only one hope that is truly trustworthy and that is our Savior, Jesus Christ. This series will draw you back to the essential truths of our faith and the life found in our King.

Led by Al Cornelius.

For Men - meeting in the GHH - office conference room

1st, 2nd, 3rd books of John - study by Tony Evans.

Comfortable Christianity often means a weak Christianity. In this study, Tony challenges Christians who have grown comfortable and complacent in their faith. In a world that hates Jesus, we are called to love Him and His people with a fierce love.

Led by Pastor Justin/Dale Heminger/Lou Ginac.

For Ladies - meeting in the media center

Who is Jesus? Who are God’s people? The first book of the New Testament answers these questions as it explores salvation history and paints the portrait of Jesus as both Messiah and Immanuel. Join us in Sunday School this year as we study the Gospel of Matthew chapter-by-chapter and experience the call to greater faith and trust in our ever-present and risen Lord.

Led by Jessi Rowland. 

Life Groups

We continue experiencing Life Groups. I am so excited that almost half of our regularly attending adults are actively involved.

For those of you who did not have the opportunity to attend the Life Group Launch, here are a few of the bullet points:

  1. Life Groups will be all about Growing in our worship, walk and witness. We will be learning about how to pray deeper (worship) how to be a disciple (walk) and how to serve and share our faith (witness).
  2. Life groups will help us develop deeper community.
  3. Life Groups are more than a meeting twice a month...It’s doing LIFE together.
  4. Life groups will incorporate regular opportunities for outreach to our community.
  5. Life groups will be led by facilitators who will get ongoing training and encouragement to fill their roles with excellence.

If you are not part of a regular Life Group, and are interested in checking it out, please contact Tim, Quinn, director of Worship/Small Groups.

Ministries for Women

  • Bible Study

    1, 2, & 4th Mondays from 6 - 7:30 PM in the office conference room.

    Join us this year we will be looking at “God Came Near” by Max Lucado. 

    It all happened in a moment — a most remarkable moment. God came near. He came not as a flash of light or as an unapproachable conqueror, but as One whose first cries were heard by a peasant girl and a sleepy carpenter. The hands that held him were not manicured, but callused and dirty. No silk. No ivory. No hype. No party. No hoopla. God had come near … for you. Travel back in time and relive Christ the Son of God becoming man. Come with Max as he brings to life the most important event in history … when God came near. And as you catch a vision of this incredible moment, let it mark the beginning of a new life for yourself.

    • Cost for books: $10
