“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. And you must love your neighbor as you love yourself.”
Growing as a disciple of Jesus is a lifelong journey of transformation by the grace of God. We want to help you grow in your relationship and love with God, other Christians, and your neighbors. And we believe that the best way to grow as a disciple is alongside of others.

Jonah and the Amazing Ways of God
Wednesdays 6:30pm – 7:45pm | August 16 – September 13
Led by Mark Westmoreland | No cost
The Book of Jonah is one of a kind. It’s called a book of prophecy, but the only sermon offered is one line long. It’s the story of a prophet, but this prophet wants nothing to do with the job. It’s about a well-placed big fish, and it’s about some really bad people who are loved by God. But, mostly, it’s about the God who loves those bad people, who calls that reluctant prophet, who is the Lord of all creation and cares about the fish (large and small), the cattle in the field, and everything else. And it all ends with a question.
Wednesdays 6:30pm – 7:45pm | August 16 – November 8
Led by Jason Mincey | Cost: $15

Women’s Bible Study | Colossians: Discover the New You
Wednesdays 6:30pm – 7:45pm | August 16 – September 20
Led by Daphne Hyatt, Jan Watkins and Tracy Goodbar | Cost: $6
Our lives are like lumps of clay on a potter’s wheel. Form, function, and beauty appear as God, the Potter, shapes us with his hands. He is in the business of molding our common lives — even the ugly parts — into something wonderful! In this study of Colossians, you will discover how to place your lives in the secure hands of God and allow him to do what he does best.
Parental Guidance Required: How to Enhance, Advance, & Influence your Children’s Relationships
Wednesdays 6:30pm – 7:45pm | August 16 – September 20
Led by Suzanne Holman | Cost $10
We have all been shaped by our relationships. They impact the decisions we make, the places we go, and the things we do. That’s why it’s so important for parents to develop strong relationships with their children. As a parent, you have the opportunity and the responsibility to guide your child’s relationship with God and with others. While culture offers many suggestions about parenting, this 6-session study looks at what God has to say about navigating the road ahead of you.

Mondays 10am – 11:30am | August 21 – December 4
