Study the Word together
Our small group Bible studies and Sunday morning groups are a vital part of the life of our church. These studies take place throughout the year and at a variety of locations in people’s homes or at the church. Each study is based on the Word and encourages an atmosphere of prayerfulness and mutual care within the group.


Unshakable Hope Intergenerational (Grades 4 through Adults) Class and PreK-3rd Sunday School Class Begins Sunday, September 13th at 9:30 AM

We are excited to announce that the Sunday after Labor Day weekend, we will begin a 12 week Sunday morning study, based on materials by Max Lucado, and his book, Unshakable Hope.  This study will equip children and adults with the promises God made to his people throughout Scripture.  Adults will meet in the auditorium, and will use a short video teaching from Max Lucado each Sunday, followed by group discussion and learning.  Young Children (Preschool through Grade 3) will meet together and learn from an aligned children’s curriculum on God’s promises.  Children will meet in the “old youth group room” adjacent to the auditorium, and arrangements will be made to allow social distancing.

On October 25, a new ABF will be held in the fellowship hall entitled “Race and the Gospel”.  In this five-part series, pastors Bryan Loritts and Matt Chandler use Paul’s words in Ephesians to address race, racism, and injustice. Through teaching and honest dialogues, Bryan and Matt will unpack the hard truths about America’s racial past and present and suggest a pathway forward of healing, justice, and hope for multiethnic harmony in the church.
