We are excited to dive into God’s Word and grow in our faith together.  


The Bible changes our perspective, strengthens our relationships, and brings unfailing hope to our lives. Together we will grapple with today’s issues and see how faith in Christ changes everything when we apply it to our lives. 

When: January 11 - May 3


Where: We won't be meeting as a large group in person for the first three meetings. The teaching will be on zoom, and your group leader will let you know where your group is meeting. 

Materials Needed: Please check the Materials Tab for each week’s lesson.

If you don't have a small group and/or want to change groups, just come to the first session and we will place you in a group.
