WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY
Everyone is welcome to join our Wednesday evening Bible study. We begin each evening at 6:30pm and end around 7:20pm. We are currently studying through the book of 1 Peter. This is led by Pastor Doug in room #100 on the bottom floor of the Office building.
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Join us for this upcoming Women’s Only Study!

You’ll ask hard questions alongside Platt about human need, suffering, faith, the gospel, and our role. For Christians, ignorance of profound human need is not an option. Neither is indifference. It’s time to explore what it means to follow Jesus in a world of urgent physical and spiritual need. Join us for this upcoming Women’s Only Study!
