The word 4

In Focus Summer Series: The Word

June 19th - July 24th, 2018

Come join us on Tuesday nights as we take a deeper look at how to study the Word of God, the Bible. Over six weeks, we will examine the differences between the biblical world and the contemporary world we live in. We will discuss ways to properly interpret the Bible in its intended context, as well as, ways to avoid common errors committed while reading and studying the Bible. Studying the Bible can be and should be exciting and enjoyable for all of us. After being equipped with the essential tools for understanding the Bible, your appreciation and understanding of the Bible will increase tremendously, along with your desire and passion for studying God’s Word. Bring your paper Bible and a journal for taking notes.

We invite you to bring your children to this class (rising 3rd graders and older)! Have them bring their Bible and a journal also.

Childcare is available for rising 2nd graders and younger.

If you have any questions please email our Care Pastor, Will Collins, at care@infocuschurch.org.

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.

We believe every lady is valuable, significant and loved by God. We know that God’s purpose and plan for each person on the planet is sure and dependable.

We want you to find a place to belong, rest, and grow with Jesus and one another.

The arena main design

The Arena 2018 - Men's Event

September 14th, 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.

Encounter

ENCOUNTER 2018 - A Victory Weekend Experience

October 12th - October 13th, 2018

$10

Do you ever feel like you want to go deeper in your walk with God? Is there a freedom that you desire to have in your life but at every turn you feel like there is a blockade? Do you long to be a disciple of Christ, not just a convert?

This 24 hour experience is a powerful time of teaching, worship, prayer and personal ministry.

Our desire at In Focus is that every church member would attend and participate in an ENCOUNTER weekend at some point. This event is a wonderful tool for anyone in their discipleship process. We do ask that that all participants satisfy two requirements: be enrolled and attending a current small group and be a regular attendee of In Focus Church for at least 6 months.

The next scheduled event is October 12 and 13. Ask your small group leader for more information.

Please note, the deadline for registrations is Thursday, October 4 at noon.
