Grace

Grace Sunday Morning Senior Adult Bible Study

June 17th - July 29th, 2018

GRACE by Max Lucado will challenge you to examine what you really believe about grace. We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace.  But do we really understand it? Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace? God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off. This class is designed for senior adults.

MomLife 2018-2019 Pre-Registration

September 14th - May 24th, 2019

Mom Life is a unique ministry designed specifically for moms of children from birth through 3rd grade. Its mission is to help mothers connect with mothers while learning life-changing truths from God’s Word.

One meeting is a large group setting where we will hear from other women on topics relevant to our lives. The other meeting is a small group setting where we will be given the time and opportunity to build relationships with Jesus and other women as we lean on one another for support and personal spiritual growth.

Sometimes, you just need a word of encouragement or wisdom from someone who has been there. That is the role of our Mentor Moms who will be your small group leaders. They will be your guide throughout the year. and hopefully a lifetime!

Each meeting your child will learn and have fun too! Grace Kids Care will be loving on your child while you have some much needed mommy time. Your children learn biblical principles through age-appropriate lessons, crafts, songs, and games. We strive to engage children in fun, interactive activities that will help them understand how the Bible applies to their lives. Our team is trained and background checked for safety.
