Fall season:

Wednesdays 7 - 8:30 PM, October 4 - November 29

spiritual gifts

Discover your spiritual gifts, personal style, and God-given passion for serving in the body of Christ. This group will help you understand who God has uniquely made you to be and guide you to a place of meaningful service.

Israel's Mission

God gave an assignment to His people thousands of years ago: Bring "lost sheep" back into the love and safety of His kingdom. It's still our task today. In this volume of the That the World May Know series, you'll glimpse the urgency and rewards of welcoming the strangers and prodigals the Lord longs to embrace.

Sundays 9:00 – 10:10 AM, October 1 - November 5

The Me I Want To Be.jpg

the me i want to be

There is a 'me' each of one of us wants to be—someone who’s kind and generous, patient, and loving. But there is a gap between the me I am and the me I want to be. Learn how to become the unique, fully alive person God intended; in your thoughts, time, relationships, and experiences.

Mondays 6:30 - 8 PM, October 2 - November 6

A Theology of the Ordinary.jpg

a theology of the ordinary

Do you experience your life as just too ordinary? If so, that is good news! God ordains and blesses ordinary life, and Jesus as a human being declares ordinary life to be the place where we reflect to the world the love and presence of God. Come find rest and hope in this counter-cultural view of ordinary human life.


Alternate Sundays 9 - 10:10 AM  October 15 - December 10

(Oct 15, Oct 29, Nov 12, Nov 26, Dec 10)


Hearing God

Hearing God? A daring idea, perhaps presumptuous—or even dangerous. But are we made for it? Dallas Willard provides rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God’s voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the life and work of the kingdom.


Thursdays 6:30 - 8 PM  October 5 - November 16

Surprised by hope

Many Christians believe our future in heaven is all that really matters. But that's not what the Bible teaches. In this LifeGroup, premier Bible scholar N.T. Wright brings you inside the Scriptures to grasp the full, breathtaking hope Jesus offers the world, and its impact on your life today.


Tuesdays 6:30 - 8 PM  October 3 - November 14

The Deeper Journey.jpg

The Deeper Journey

If the goal of the Christian journey is Christlikeness, then you must reckon with the unhealthy ways that you root your sense of being in things other than God.
