Restoration Night begins with a large group gathering at 6:25 PM in the Real Life Auditorium. This typically includes a time of worship and a short message or testimony. On the first Thursday of each month we also celebrate with a Chip Party, handing out milestone chips to mark periods of sobriety or victory in areas people are working on.

Love & War

This quarter we are also offering a marriage class on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM, starting October 1.

Love & War is an eight-week video-based class from John and Stasi Eldredge, facilitated by Ian & Monica Elliott and John & Kelly Forney.

John and Stasi begin Love & War with an obvious confession: Marriage is fabulously hard. But beneath and behind the inevitable tensions a man and woman “locked in the same submarine” are going to have, the real battle is against the work of the Enemy, who plots and schemes to tear love apart. The Eldredges show how couples can win “by fighting for each other, instead of against each other.”

Steps to Freedom

October 21, 2023
9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

This is a one-day event walking through The Steps to Freedom, a Biblical guide to resolve personal and spiritual conflicts and become a fruitful disciple of Jesus.
