Learning Opportunities

BELIEVE

Remember in September of 2014 when we as a whole church spent a year together studying The Story? The Story was a resource that guided us through 30 weeks of focusing on the Bible in a very unique way. This fall we are embarking on another 30-week journey that is a follow-up to The Story. It’s called Believe. The challenge will be for believers of all ages to be able to answer three driving questions:

  • What do I believe?
  • What should I do?
  • Who am I becoming?

This unique learning experience includes curriculum for children, teens, and adults—including small groups. As a church, we will all be on the same page as we move through this experience. join us as we journey through Believe. Complete the commitment card below and commit to host and/or participate in this church-wide Biblical learning experience.   Join us as we learn together how to think, act and be like Jesus. In fact, encourage a friend to join with you to —

KNOW WHAT YOU BELIEVE AND WHY IT MATTERS.
