REACH GROUPS

NEW STUDY BEGINS IN JULY!

~ ZOOM GROUPS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ~

WHAT ARE REACH GROUPS?  REACH GROUPS are small groups of people doing life together by meeting weekly over the course of a semester. They last about 60-90 minutes and meet on various days & times. They can meet on the church campus, in a home, at a diner, or even through the ZOOM video conference platform – the possibilities are endless! REACH GROUPS provide an opportunity to go deeper – living and learning Gospel Truth. They’re also an opportunity to connect with others and build relationships. We’re meant to navigate life together!

 

DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A BOOK? Book purchases are recommended for some REACH GROUPS, but they are not required. Participants can purchase a class book by following the links provided on our website. These links are provided as a courtesy and are only suggestions, as you may find more cost-effective resources on your own.

SONS NOT SERVANTS – SMALL GROUPS

We aren’t sons or daughters because we serve. We serve because we’re sons and daughters.

 

 

One of the most powerful parables Jesus told is about the prodigal son in Luke 15. This young man made many mistakes and felt unworthy of an intimate relationship with his father. Believers today often think that their mistakes disqualify them from being children of God, but our heavenly Father does not see it that way.

 

 

God gives every believer a robe of righteousness, a ring of authority, and shoes of sonship, which reflect the glorious truth of our relationship with Him.

 

 

Join us for this three-session study with Pastor Robert Morris where we will learn:

 – What it means to live righteously as God’s children

 – How we have authority over the enemy’s schemes

 – Why our relationship with God is by grace, not what we do

 

Study begins the week of July 11th!
