"Dating and Marriage in the Storm: Marriages can be the most painful and joyful relationships on earth. The constant beatings they take from the many different storms of life can be exhausting. The good news is that we have what we need for strong and healthy marriages. Join us this fall to see the ways that God has prepared us for marriage and learn what dating couples can do to prepare for a life of covenant together."

Campus ministry has made a shift away from Collide, the large corporate worship gathering, into a new ministry called House Groups. These groups provide for a much smaller, more authentic and genuine experience and expression of the gospel. They take place almost any night of the week in one of our church family's homes.
Diana & Steve Maiorca are restarting and reinventing the midweek fellowship that meets at their home. They meet Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00. Time will be spent singing, dwelling in God's Word, sharing lives, and praying. Children, always welcome, will be encouraged to start with the adults for singing, and may go play quietly in the next room as developmentally appropriate. No meal will be served, but dessert may appear. The Maiorcas would love to connect with your family! Email Diana at email@example.com for more details.

Each Sunday evening, we gather at ~5:30 PM for food/fellowship and conclude the evening bible study time at 7:30 PM. We are currently engaged in a study of Joseph, examining the work of the Lord in his life, and connecting that study to the hand of God working in our own lives.
