Sunday Mornings at 9:00 am

  • fundamentals of the faith

    The Fundamentals of the Faith (FOF) class covers thirteen lessons blending basic biblical truths with personal obedience and service. Topics range from the character of God to church participation, so it's an ideal study for new believers or a helpful review and fresh encouragement for even the most seasoned saints. FOF begins April 14 in the Library and is led by Patrick LaCanfora.

  • family hour - parents & children

    Parents and children are welcomed and encouraged to praise God together through fun worship songs. We will also have a short Bible lesson followed by Family Table Time. The Family Table Time is designed to facilitate family discussions that reinforce important biblical truths from the lesson using thought provoking and creative learning activities. We also encourage each family to use the Generations of Grace Companion Family Devotional Booklet during the week ($10). The Devotional Booklet has daily passages and discussion questions to help the father/parents disciple their children at home daily by both reviewing and going in-depth on the lesson and bible passages taught the prior Sunday.

  • dispatches from the front

    Believers everywhere desperately need a renewed vision of Christ and the unstoppable advance of His saving work in all the earth. Our view of God's Kingdom is often too small and limited to what we have experienced. This 10-episode, DVD series highlights the marvelous extent, diversity, and unity of Christ's Kingdom in our world. The journal format of each episode underscores the daily unfolding of God's activity on the "frontlines," bringing you up-close with sights and sounds from distant corners of the Kingdom. *


    Dispatches from the Front has been called “a front-row seat on the frontlines.” These episodes are not scripted, staged, or re-created. The writing and filming unfolded in the moment—moments that reveal the power of the Gospel in every place.*


    Come Sunday mornings beginning June 9, as we unite our hearts with our brothers and sisters in different parts of the world. It will awaken us out of our comfortable Christianity and expand our vision of the King and His powerful Gospel.*
