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.

The arena main design

The Arena 2018 - Men's Event

July 6th, 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.
