Growth groups are designed to provide a consistent, ongoing opportunity to experience deeper connections with God and with others. Below is a list of days and times that groups are being offered.
The Reason For God by Tim Keller (Men’s Study)
Monday @ 7PM (Begins May 8th)
Location: Upper Room
Why does God allow suffering in the world? How could a loving God send people to Hell? How can one religion be “right” and the others “wrong”? Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God? Tim Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics, and even ardent believers have about religion. Using literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and potent reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one.

KOINONEA is a big, fat Greek word that means “sharing” and “in common,” among other things. It’s the perfect word to describe this class because we meet to share a great message. We bring our prayer issues, requests, praises and enjoy our unity in Christ that transcends our differences. You can enter at any point and fit right in.
Sunday @ 9:30AM
Leaders: Richard & Doreen Steenland; Location: Main Office
