For anyone who has ever struggled (or is struggling) with fear, worry, anxiety, or who wonders how families and communities can live as peacemakers in troubled times, this study offers an informed and inspiring message full of practical solutions.

Living Fully and Dying Well: Reflecting on Death to Find Your Life’s Meaning
Most of us try to avoid thinking about death until the moment we come face-to-face with it. But when we have the courage to accept our inevitable mortality—and even to contemplate it actively, as a spiritual practice—we open the door to living fully, joyfully, and in complete presence. Through discussion we will challenge ourselves to fully embrace life from beginning to the end.

The Story of God, The Story of Us: Getting Lost and Found in the Bible
Before the Bible was a book, it was flesh and blood. It is the story of people and of God’s movement in their lives. We will use a book to help us connect with Scripture and find a bit of ourselves and our own stories in the people and events of Scripture. It is an opportunity to connect with Scripture in a new way.

Home Groups are a great space to build life-long relationships based on support, confidentiality, and authenticity. Within a home group you should expect to find people sharing life together through the greatest celebrations and the most difficult struggles. The more you invest yourself in a group, the more you will thrive in faith. The groups are always growing in number, and more are always needed.
