Starting JANUARY 9TH through February 6th, we will have a new Life Group Study for adults in the Fellowship Hall, “Reopening Christianity” by Zach Zehnder.
The world needs a greater representation of Jesus. Pastor Zach Zehnder asks 5 challenging questions that every Christian must answer in order to be the greatest and fullest representation of Jesus that we can be.
1. Am I Moving Foward or Going Backward?
2. Am I a Consumer or a Contributor?
3. Am I Playing Offense or Defense?
4. Am I Known for What I Am For or What I Am Against?
5. Am I Willing to Follow Jesus As My Lord?
Everyone is welcome to attend! We hope to see you here!


The Real Heaven–New Adult Life Group Study

We will discover what Heaven will be like, what we’ll do there, what we’ll experience and how we are to prepare for eternity today!
