NEW SMALL GROUP has begun meeting on Wednesdays, 7pm, in lower level.
If you were waiting for an invitation to follow in Jesus’ footsteps-this is it. This 8-week study, Andy Stanley shows you that Jesus' invitation to his first-century audience was really an invitation to relationship - it began with a simple request-follow me. Join others in this journey thru the Gospels as Andy traces Jesus' teaching on what it means to follow-and prepare to see your faith radically changed.
Crosstraining to begin this Fall – this is a discipleship training group (aka Confirmation) for those entering the 7th/8th Grade. Pastor George leads this group on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8pm. If you are interested in learning more, an info gathering is being planned, please write “CrossTraining” on your Communication Card.
