*The Gathering Guide is a way to provide study material for Groups that meet throughout the week.  Written by Pastors Steve and Erik, this guide allows groups to dig deeper into each week's message and apply it in practical ways.  In this way, a Sunday message comes to life in the midst of your life. The Gathering Guide is broken into sections that encourage further Biblical insight, practical application, and prayer.  

For more information about Group Life or how to get connected, contact Sheila Steer, Adult Discipleship Director, at  

Childcare and Children's Programs are available at both the 9:30AM and 11AM services.
