LIFEGROUPS & CLASSES


LifeGroups are an opportunity to find freedom, experience community and grow spiritually in a smaller, more relational context than we experience on Sunday morning.

Classes are an opportunity to learn and deepen your understanding of God and His purpose for your life.

LIFEGROUPS

OUR SPRING 2024 SEMESTER REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. SIGN UP BELOW FOR LIFEGROUPS & CLASSES WE OFFER TO GROW IN YOUR FAITH THIS SEASON!

GROUP FULL Freedom

Sundays at 2:30pm at a home in Olney, starting February 4th

Conference May 4th

Michelle Zetts & Nancy Jones

Are you ready to live life abundantly (John 10:10)? “Growing in Freedom” will equip you to live the victorious life God intended. In addition to the 12-session small group, we will end with a powerful conference (May 4th) focused on overcoming our past so we can run to and with God. Because the topics build on each other, regular attendance and weekly homework is part of this group. Cost: $15 for curriculum book plus a $35 retreat cost. Regrettably, no childcare will be provided.

———————————

NOTE: Because the Freedom Group is a significant time commitment, and has limited enrollment, we ask that participants commit only to Freedom (for the 12-week period) and do not sign up for any other LifeGroups. This will ensure you can invest in and get out all that you can from the group. This will also allow us to best use our limited enrollment.
