Classes

During the school year we offer classes, support groups and Bible studies on Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in order to give you an opportunity to learn and apply the truths of the Bible. Whether it’s a Bible study of a particular passage or book, a class about spiritual disciplines or a group that helps people find freedom from pain and suffering, there is always a chance for you to connect and grow with us.

class-boundaries

Boundaries

Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. Do you have trouble saying no? Can you set limits and still be a loving person? Are you in control of your life? Do people take advantage of you? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer biblically based answers to these tough questions as they show us to set healthy boundaries with our parents our spouses, our children, our friends and even ourselves.

Exodus

Exodus: The Story Of God’s Salvation

Exodus begins with God’s people in a foreign land, enslaved to a tyrant and with hope quickly fading. We wonder along with them: where is God? The book of Exodus is God’s majestic answer to the question of his presence: he sees their suffering, he redeems them, and he creates them into a new community with his presence at the very center. Along the way, we find answers to several of our own pressing questions about salvation, the law and whether God is really consistent throughout Scripture.

When we are freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy. Mom’s Connection is designed for moms with children of all ages for a time of fellowship, refreshments, and discussion over the book.
