  • exploring the bible - 01 "What is the Bible?"

    How well do you know the Bible? Do you know how the Bible is organized and how those texts were chosen?  Have you ever thought about all the different ways people approach the Bible?  This 6-week course in basic biblical literacy assumes no prior knowledge of the Bible, yet is also able to connect with the seasoned Bible reader. 

    The current group is closed for registration, but more will be available in the future!


    Discipleship huddles are 6-week small groups that help us draw closer to God through hands-on spiritual practices for busy lives.  Our focus will be learning to hear God speak into our lives - amidst all of the craziness & chaos around us.  Starting Jan. 30, these 90-min. sessions will be held on SATURDAYS @ 10am.  (Here's the Zoom link.)

  • BIBLE STUDY: "maturing in Christ"

    We all want to grow into the person that God has created us to be... but sometimes knowing just HOW to do that is tricky.  In this 6-week Bible study series, we'll look at 2 different New Testament passages each week to see who God is calling us to be.  No outside reading required.  We'll gather every TUESDAY from 7-8:30pm.  (Here's the Zoom link.)
