Great times with great people meeting regularly, applying God's Word to our lives


Fall is a time to invest in your marriage! Fuel your relationship with great teaching and dessert with other couples.

Featuring Marriage Today’s “Becoming One” video teaching by Jimmy Evans
“Lasting love is so much more than physical attraction. The secret to falling in love and staying in love is realizing what it truly means to become one with another person. Closeness and satisfaction can become reality like you never thought possible.”

New Study Begins – Wednesday Nights @ 6:30

Wed. Night Study Group begins Entrusted, by Beth Moore on Oct. 25th, Room 205
Men & Women, join us for a 6-week study of 2 Timothy. In Paul’s final letter, he charged Timothy not to be ashamed to fulfill God’s call on his life, and the Entrusted study will challenge you to do the same.

Come watch the videos with our Wednesday night family, and enjoy rich discussions based on the evening’s teaching. Go deeper in your personal study as well with a copy of the study guide for $15 (optional). Contact Michelle Abling at for more info.

Overflow Youth Happenings

Please keep the youth in your prayers as they are on Fall Retreat October 20-22nd. Pray that God shows us how to be so filled with Him, that we live our lives from a place of Overflow.
