2017 Spring Session

8 Weeks from March 26 to May 11

Our community groups are given tree names for the sake of simple identification, but also to convey a healing and life-giving focus of these groups. There is a vision given in Ezekiel 47 that describes a river that begins with a little trickle from the temple of God. As it moves away from there, it grows in size and volume bringing life everywhere it flows.

At the end of the vision, Ezekiel says, “…fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river…Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.” We encourage you to choose one of the groups from the following list and get spiritually nourished and healed!

Sexual compromise is the single most profound factor in men’s lives that negatively impacts their relationships, careers, finances, spirituality, and may derail their very destiny. In this study for men, we will discover how to use some basic weapons for winning the daily battle of sexual integrity. Whether the behavior is out of control, or just starting to take a man off course, this is a place to start to get back on track. There is a small cost for a workbook.

God wants us to live loved when we feel left out, lonely, and less than. In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst digs deep into God’s to help you explore the roots of rejection. As well as rejection’s ability to poison relationships from the inside-out, including our relationship with God. Study Guides are recommended to purchase.
