Life Groups

Mid-size Life Groups are a great place to connect to fellow faith-filled folks on Sunday mornings. Groups range from 20-70 in size and are mostly formed by age and stage of life.

As your children grow and change, so do their parenting needs. So where do you go for support and encouragement as your kids move into their teen years?

Questioning Christianity

What is God like and why does it matter? The first few classes taught by philosophy and New Testament professors Steve Odmark and Tim Henderson will address this topic, and branch out from there.

Financial Peace University

The average household income is $56,516, and families are drowning in an ocean of debt. Statistics show that 76% of people live paycheck to paycheck, and 64% of Americans can’t cover a $1,000 emergency.

But what if you didn’t have to face car payments or credit card debt? What if you and your spouse were on the same page with your finances and could avoid blow ups over money? What could you accomplish if you weren’t held back by finances?

There is a smarter way to manage your money. Through this 9-week course, you can learn how to pay off your debt, save for the future, and team up with your spouse. Watch this video of a young couple that found FPU helpful.
