We as a church family value community. We believe that life is better together. Just as followers of Jesus did in the early days immediately following Jesus death and resurrection, we want people to encourage one another, pray for each other and continue meeting virtually.
Each of our develop classes is committed to continue studying scripture, praying for each other and supporting one another while we practice social distancing to beat the Coronavirus. If you need help connecting to a develop class, please email Dave McPherson.
Wednesday nights we have several places where individuals can grow closer to God in community with others. We also offer an affordable meal beginning at 5:15 pm, unless otherwise indicated.

Evangelism in a Secular Age
January 15-April 29 / 6:15-7:15pm / room 405c / led by Chris Matthews
The Bible makes it clear that evangelism is essential to following Jesus. Yet the majority of Christians today admit to infrequently, if ever, sharing the gospel of Jesus with others. Today, conversations about Jesus are often met with defensiveness or objections. How should we share the good news of Jesus in love with our neighbors in an increasingly secular and skeptical age?
