STUDY GROUPS



deepen intellectually

These group environments focus on going deeper intellectually. Usually a specific topic or book of the Bible is what brings these groups together. There are certainly social and communal aspects to these groups, but they have a much more structured feel. They will often include required reading and study outside the meeting times.

a message from god

Saturdays, 7:30-9:30 AM, April 7 - May 19

Facilitator:  Dawn Nahorniak

Cost: $20 (no child care)


In our day, everything from music to politics is described as "Christian," but are they? Is Jesus what our society or culture says He is? And who are the people who belong to Him? How can you know? Biblical truth can only be understood straight from God's Word, not opinion polls. In A Message from God: Light Living in Dark Days, you'll unpack 1 John in just seven weekends and see God's message for yourself without the "middleman" of others' opinions and ideas!
