THE ALPHA COURSE
Is there more to life than this? Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus die? How can I have faith? Why and how should I pray? Why and how should I read the Bible? How does God guide us? Who is the Holy Spirit? What does the Holy Spirit do? How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit? How can I make the most of the rest of my life? How can I resist evil? Why and how should I tell others? Does God heal today? What about the church?
Discuss the answers to these and other important questions in the Alpha Course. Join the thousands of adults around the world who have found purpose and peace through authentic Christianity.

crazy lovE (francis chan)
“It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts - it’s falling in love with God.”
Date: Sundays, 7 - 9 p.m. Beginning April 11 (5 week course, meeting twice/month)

psalm 119 (matt chandler)
Even the most mature believers face dark nights of the soul. During those times, God feels distant, His Word dry, and the vibrant intimacy we knew before seems absent leaving us wondering, “Where is the Lord in this?” In Psalm 119, pastor Matt Chandler aims to introduce viewers to the words of King David who experienced similar seasons of life. Serving as the anchor for the study, Psalm 119 demonstrates the power of God’s Word in the lives of believers and its ability to provide a warm blanket for the soul.

Genesis 28:14 “Your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and in you and your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (ESV)
We understand that having a young family can sometimes be hectic and leave little time for relationships. Twice a month we will be opening our home for any families with young children to come in and have a time of fellowship together. Bring your children and an appetizer, if you’d like, so that we can get to know one another and build a firmer foundation for our families. While there will be no formal Bible study, we will be opening every evening with prayer and ending the evening with a discussion and/or any prayer requests the group may have. We look forward to getting to know you all!
