Fridays @ 7:00 pm - Beginning February 10th - Teens & Adults - Jesus left His believers with two mandates:  1) Love thy neighbor as thyself (the greatest commandment) and 2) reach lost souls for Christ (the Great Commission).  But how do we connect Jesus to a secular world that is gripped with fear from the daily exposure of living life outside the Will of God?  How do we, as believers in Christ, remain rooted and grounded in God's word to be effective Ambassadors and Disciples for Christ? Or in simpler terms, "How do we let our lights shine?" This group will learn and grow together in God's word encouraging each other to let our lights shine in a dark world.
