Christian Believer Bible Study

Wednesdays, 7 pm |   Beginning September 13th  | Room 157


The Christian Believer Bible Study program focuses on classical teachings of the Christian faith—presenting, explaining, and interpreting them in a way that participants can understand, through the use of words, symbols, and hymns. Over a 30-week period, participants will examine the writings of ancient and modern Christian commentators and view video presentations by leading Bible scholars. Each lesson includes an explanation and commentary on the doctrines being studied, raises questions for reader reflection and written response, and suggests ideas for additional reading and study.




Financial Peace University

Tuesdays, 7pm | Beginning September 12th | Room 133


We all need a plan for our money, and Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) provides that plan by teaching Godly ways to handle our money. Through video teaching, class discussions, and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you have dreamed of being. This nine-week class will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, and spend and save wisely!

    Since the worship space is a place where people assemble to encounter Christ, our altar attendants prepare the worship space for service and decorate seasonally throughout the year.

    Help is always welcome as flowers are sold in the Gathering Area in the weeks leading up to Christmas and Easter to help adorn the worship center.
