Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath by Pricilla Shirer is a 7-week, video-led study in which participants will learn how to break the bondage of busyness to make room for Sabbath rest. With a jam-packed life, what's missing is space - space for God to speak, room for you to hear. It's time to set aside the activities and busyness that swallow up rest and peace. It's time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.
Cost is $10.00 for the Study Journal.

Objections Answered - A Primer on What Christians Believe and Why They Believe it.
Many people have honest and challenging questions about the Christian faith. Many believers often feel less than equipped to answer those questions. Perhaps you are one of them! In Objections Answered, we will be answering some of those questions with biblically sound and reasonable answers. What is truth? Does God exist? Why is Christ the only way? Isn’t the bible simply an out of date book full of errors? If you have ever struggled to give reasons for what you believe and why you believe it, Objections Answered will present honest answers to honest questions that you can confidently begin sharing with others.

Middle School students will have an opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. on October 11-13, and will be serving and staying with an organization called CSM (City Service Mission).
CSM has been around since 1988, and runs short term mission programs in nine cities across the US. They are a fantastic organization to work with, because the staff in Washington, D.C. have long-lasting, personal relationships with the ministries we will work with. They make every effort to keep groups safe that come work with them, and multiple CSM staff will be with our group at all times.
The hope for this trip is that it can have a significant impact on the faith and discipleship of our Middle School students. By removing them from the comfort zone of their home and familiar community, we hope to break down walls to help them see God working in a way they never have before.
We will be bringing 20 students, and 4 adult leaders, so spots are limited!
The total cost for the trip will be $250, which includes meals, lodging, transportation and all activities.
Registration is Full
