Join a Fall Bible Study
The best way we have for knowing about who God is and what God does is through the Bible. Even though we all could read and study the Bible individually, we learn so much more when we read and study the Bible together in a group. Go see the various studies we have available and sign up!

Learning to Lament Mini-Retreat
We all need to learn to Lament, especially when we find ourselves, perhaps even right now, in the midst of the deep dark clouds of suffering, pain, loss, and even despair. There is a deeper mercy to be found when we discover the grace of Lament. Lament is a prayer in pain that leads to trust. Biblical Lament is how Christians grieve. It is also how to help hurting people. Join us and invite others as together we Learn to Lament for His glory and our joy!
Please register each person attending to let us know you are coming!
