ACE: Theological Foundations for Leaders
Starts September 12th at 10:00 AM
Join Pastor Steve, Steve Hoogerhyde and our officer candidates for this 16-week discussion-based survey of our doctrinal beliefs. We’ll explore what we believe, why it matters, and how to live in response to the truth. All adults are welcome. Officer candidates will be completing assigned reading for each lesson; others are encouraged but not required to do the reading. Those who are interested should order their own copies of the Westminster Confession of Faith and John Frame’s book, Salvation Belongs to the Lord.
Email email@example.com with any questions or for more info.
Starts September 30th at 7:30 PM
Looking to get connected and grow in your faith? Join us for a 6-week discipleship group designed specifically for newcomers and long-termers who are not yet in a small group. We’ll explore how to grow in our experience of God and live out the Christian life. More than a teaching time, this small group experience will equip you with spiritual dynamics and practices to follow Jesus in practical ways. Minimal homework will help you apply what you’re learning and put it to use in your life.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to join this group.
