Walking by Faith

Join us this semester for an exciting look into the mechanics of faith. How does faith work and what activates faith in our lives? We will examine Hebrews chapter 11 for examples of people living out Biblical faith and hear modern day stories each week from people who have actually experienced times of extreme faith.

24/7 Prayer

This is NOT a class about prayer, this is a group that gathers to PRAY! 1 John 5:14-15 tells us, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.” Come and pray for our church, our community, and the mission of reaching the world for Jesus.

Love & Respect

Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires, the Respect He Desperately Needs, is based on the biblical passage from Ephesians 5:33.
