Wednesdays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning September 8th - Millenial & Gen X Women - If you’re a sister born in or after the 70s, walking as a Godly woman can get tricky. Afros, bell bottoms, Hip-hop, MTV, video games, the Internet, recession, the rebirth of Apple, Occupy Wallstreet, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, mass shootings, and a new sexual revolution. All of these things helped shape and define us. In a world saturated with social and digital media, trying to study the Bible, just hits different. So why not take a different approach to exploring the word of God, using pop culture, current events, and popular music. Ladies, no matter where you are between 90’s rap and Proverbs 31, the “Somewhere In Between” Growth Group is for you!

Mondays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning September 13th - Youth (Kindergarten through 5th Grade) - Parents, has your child ever made a big plan? What was the plan? How did it turn out? Does your child think God will be able to accomplish His plan? Why or why not? In the Book of Ephesians, Paul talks about the plan God has for us. We will explore with your children what God's plan is and how we can follow His plan. Also, we will explore the arts through fabric and how it was used in the Bible. Ms. Na Sha, our Art Teacher will bring fabric to life with hands-on activities for our youth! As we walk through the Book of Ephesians, we encourage parents to talk with their children daily about God's plan for their lives. We also ask parents to talk with their children about what they learn in our K-5 Connect Growth Group!

Wednesdays @ 6:30 pm - Beginning September 8th - Youth in Grades 6-12 - As a teenager, it probably seems like you're constantly being advised toward one extreme after another. Your parents and teachers are pushing you toward maturity and responsibility. Some of your friends may be suggesting pursue things that will bring the most immediate pleasure. The image portrayed by many musicians, actors, and athletes glorifies sex and drugs and untamed selfishness. With all of these conflicting views, how does a Christian teenager decide how to live? This growth group will encourage teens to make every decision out of a worldview shaped by God's Word and centered around our Savior, Jesus. Abandon the idea that choices made in youth are temporary and meaningless. Instead, learn to make decisions now that will impact both your life and God's Kingdom for eternity.
