SERVICE  |  Participants are provided opportunities to be generous followers of Jesus Christ through mission and service.

ENGAGE  |  Participants gather in small groups to engage with each other and their leaders. There are opportunities to participate in topical discussions, and the groups spend time in prayer and share their joys and concerns. This is a great way to learn how to care for each other!

  • New believers
  • Parents trying to stay ahead of their kids
  • Couples preparing for marriage
  • Newcomers to the church

  • Why did Jesus die?
  • Why and how should I read the Bible?
  • Why and how do I pray?
  • What about the Holy Spirit?
  • How can I overcome evil?
