Everybody Always

What happens when we give away love like we’re made of it? In his entertaining and inspiring New York Times bestseller, author Bob Goff takes readers on a journey into the secret of living without fear, constraint, or worry. The path toward the liberated existence we all long for is found in a truth as simple to say as it is hard to do: love people, even the difficult ones, without distinction and without limits. Join Pastor Erik and Kama and discover what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction.

How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge

One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders learn to unleash their influence wherever they are, regardless of position or title. This class will nurture your vision, cultivate influence, and free you to become the great leader you want to be so you can make a difference right where you are. Even when you’re not the boss or CEO.

Letters to the Church

God’s Church started as a radical, spiritually intimate gathering of believers that ultimately changed history. Yet millions today are content to be mere observers at church. Many more have left, brokenhearted and cynical. But God is waking up His people—people who will risk anything and sacrifice everything to be the dynamic, world-changing Church of Scripture.

gods at War

Pleasure, romance, sex, money, and power are just a few of the gods that vie for our allegiance in today’s society. They battle for the throne of our hearts, and much is at stake. This is why idolatry is the most discussed problem in the entire Bible. Behind every sin struggle that you and I have is a false god that is winning the war in our lives. Thankfully, when the Lord God takes His rightful place on the throne of our hearts, we will have victory.

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.

You and Me Forever

This Bible study, based on the book from best-selling author Francis Chan and Lisa Chan, will challenge you to view your marriage like never before. Love, laughter, and intimacy were all created to be enjoyed. So there is a way to love family deeply without ignoring heaven. It all comes down to our focus. Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage.

Daniel – Women’s Study

The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures—to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers face many of the same trials. This study examines how believers can develop integrity in our modern-day Babylon, and then explores prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Christ.
