BREAKTHROUGHS – Finding your way to Freedom   

Breakthroughs (formerly Crossroads) is a 13 week intentional path to freedom from the Walls in our lives. We refer to these Walls in our lives as Strongholds. Strongholds create bondage in our lives, rob us of God’s peace and joy and cause us to feel “stuck” in life. Breakthroughs is designed to help individuals identify and tear down Strongholds thus leading to freedom in Christ. On this intentional path, we discover our identity in Christ and biblical truth that sets us free from lies of the enemy.

Breakthroughs includes a large group lesson each week, small groups and a workbook. Cost - $10 (includes workbook).

Breakthroughs meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in room C234. New Session will begin September 13th, 2017.

For parents with children or teens

Parenting is hard work! But what if it were simpler? Both Science and the Bible show us that the most important thing we can provide for our kids is a place of emotional safety.  Safe House is a 7 week, video based study that helps you to connect with your child’s heart to promote emotional safety so they can grow to live, love, and lead well. As parents, we will look at how our own stories effect the story we are writing for our children. You will be encouraged to know you really do have what it takes to author a beautiful story! Watch Safe House Trailer Video.

Marriage Matters -  COMMUNITY GROUP

Marriage Matters is a new community group on Sunday mornings for couples of all ages. Marriage Matters is based on a 1-year marriage curriculum designed to help couples build a strong marriage using biblical truth and practical tools. Couples will discover the impact that experiencing true fulfillment in Jesus Christ has on their marriage and home. Couples will grow closer in their relationship with God and one another as they seek Him together. Led by Dan & Judi Post and Greg & Janet Burkett. 

Join us on Sundays at 11:00 am in room C230 as we begin these new studies:

August 20th – October 1st – The DNA of Relationships: a 6 week study, by Dr. Gary Smalley, to help couples discover the building blocks that lead to a strong and lasting marriage.

October 8th – November 12th - Grace Filled Marriage:  a 6 week study, by Dr. Tim Kimmel, that explores a radical hypothesis: “The missing ingredient in most marriages isn’t love; it’s grace. Love is what gets us going, but grace is what keeps us going strong.” 


Griefshare is a 13-week group for those who have lost a loved one.  Participants will watch a DVD lesson each week related to grief and loss and then have a time to share in their small group.  The group will help individuals walk through the pain of grief and experience God’s hope and healing.
