Couples of Promise

This winter beginning January 15 we will study I Am N by Voice of the Martyrs.

This study will be followed by John Peiper's six-week video study God is the Gospel. The Bible tells us the gospel is good news not because of its many peripheral blessings, but because it brings us to God and to utter delight in him.

Romans clearly explains God's grace and justification by faith through the completed work of Christ on the Cross and teaches us to be led by the Holy Spirit. In studying and searching these scriptures, we will surely find and experience more of Him whom we love!

Go Getters

Leaders: Paul Johnson & Steve Robinson

Many people say that the symbolism and visions concerning the "End of the Age" are too complicated and difficult to understand, therefore, why try? It is important to understand what God is communicating in His Word. It is written for a purpose and the porpoise is not to be ignored because it seems so complicated.
