    We have a new summer Bible Study beginning on Thursdays June 22nd at 6:30 pm called Victory over Darkness by Neil Anderson. This is a popular study about our identity in Christ. Come to learn how we are called to renounce the things that are not of Jesus as well as learn tools to conquer the issues, once and for all, that keep us from fully receiving all He has for us. Class taught by Marge Dickie.




    Sixth grade to High School age students are invited to join Student Ministries on Wednesday evenings this summer to study "Ten Commandments from the Back Side," from 6:30 - 8:30 pm in the Loft and Café. We will have a cereal bar!
