Beginning

The Beginning and Connected - Membership Class

February 5th - May 28th, 2018

This group is reserved for those currently in the church membership process.

The Beginning is a helpful step for new disciples. During this five-session study, participants will explore the foundations of following Jesus and find answers to the kinds of questions all disciples ask, including:

-What does it mean to become a disciple of Jesus?

-How do I make Jesus the center of my life?

-How do I connect with God in a deep and personal way?

-What does my relationship with Jesus look like in community?

-How do I model Jesus in my everyday life?

After completing The Beginning, we will dive in to CONNECTED: My Life in the Church.

This study gives you biblical understanding of what it means to be a part of the body of Christ. It examines important connections like service, growth, and prayer.

The arena main design

The Arena 2018 - Men's Event

March 9th, 2018

The Arena is an opportunity for men to gather together in a relaxed setting to have fun, build relationships, and worship together.

We believe that all men have ‘fight’ in their hearts. It’s how we were made. The question is, what are we fighting for? A mercenary fights for his own benefit, but a warrior fights for a cause bigger than himself. We are called, as Christians, to be warriors for the sake of the Gospel.

Our hope is that while at The Arena, you will experience the depth of God’s love for you, as well as sense the urgency of the battle at hand for our own lives, our families, and our fellow brothers.

1 Timothy 6:11-12 says, "But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession before many witnesses.”

Real Men Fight!

The Arena is open to all men, including high school juniors and seniors. Registration not required. Mark your calendar now! Doors open at 6:30 pm.

Inspire 2018 main deign

INSPIRE 2018 - RISE

April 27th - April 28th, 2018

$85 Adults

$50 Students

The In Focus Church Ladies Ministry is so excited to be hosting INSPIRE again on April 27 and 28!

"Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. It’s a scandal when people waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one will see. Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ.

Wake up from your sleep,

Rise from the dead!

Climb out of your coffins;

Christ will show you the light!"

This passage from Ephesians is intended to ignite something deep in our hearts! It reminds us that there’s a very authentic, specific, intended plan for us in this world.

God has a light to shine on us...and through us.

There can be two responses to the charge given in this scripture: say no, stay in our mess and walk away from God’s plan or say yes and RISE to the place that Jesus calls us to live.

Let’s say yes together...arm in arm...as an army of sisters, daughters, friends! Inspire 2018 is going to be an amazing time to gather together. You are welcome, just as you are!

Spread the word and bring your friends! What an awesome time to grow together and with Jesus. Our hope is always that every conference attendee leaves encouraged-full of vision and strength to face the path that God has laid out for her.

We can’t wait to see you at INSPIRE 2018. Get registered and secure your spot!

Blessings,
