New Classes Beginning!

We embrace the membership vow of Presence, especially in the atmosphere of small groups and classes.  God instilled in us the desire to belong.  Evening classes and Sunday School are ways to feel connected and grow in your faith.  Studying the bible in a small group is an effective way to grow your relationship closer to Christ, while at the same time getting connected with your church family.

Learn from the fierce women of God who changed the world. The word fierce is trendy. It is used to describe women who are extreme athletes, high-level executives, or supermodels. Women at the top of their game. But what about the rest of us? Can we be fierce? Absolutely! In fact, women like us have been changing the world for thousands of years—many who received little fanfare yet lived fiercely anyway. In this six-week study we will look at lesser-known female characters in the Bible and the ways they changed the world by living into God’s calling.

What Makes a Hero? The Death-Defying Ministry of Jesus by Matt Rawle

6 Weeks

Facilitated by Kim Cooke

To sign up, click here.

Offers us an image of what it looks like to be victorious over trials and temptations. Looking at pop culture heroes and others through the lens of faith, Matt Rawle shows how Jesus turned the concept of hero on its head. In keeping with his theme, “Pop in Culture,” the book examines how good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, and overcoming adversity are fundamental to how Christians understand salvation. Heroes help us discern the good, fight for what’s right, define identity, execute justice, spark revolution, and save lives.

Rawle enters the Gospel story to tell quite a different victory story—one obtained through humility, obedience to the cross, and an empty tomb. How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero?

Difference Makers by Gregg Matte

When we look at the needs in the world around us, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. And that feeling often leads to paralyzing inaction. With so much to do, how do we know where to start? We feel unqualified to lead change; however, God leads through unlikely people. We start by discovering the purpose and mission God has designed for us. As followers of Jesus, we have been called to make a difference for the kingdom of God.
The truth is that you were created for more than watching. You have a history-changing, difference-making, life-giving, Spirit-empowered legacy to leave. This study will motivate and equip you to get off the sidelines and into the thick of ministry with Jesus. As He works through you, you will pray, go, and give of yourself to make an eternal difference.

How Happiness Happens by Max Lucado

6 Weeks

Facilitated by Catherine Wolf

To sign up, click here.

There’s always a path to happiness that always delivers.  Our culture tries to convince us there is one way to happiness: aspire, acquire, desire, retire. Happiness depends on what we hang in our closet, park in our garage, and deposit in our bank account. Yet, it’s a path that always fails to deliver. In this video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado looks at several “one another” statements in the Bible that reveal how the happiest people on earth aren’t those who have the most but those who are willing to give the most away.
