A place to Believe, Belong, and Become

Operating as usual

[03/12/15]   Hey everyone... great night last night! I just wanted to remind everyone about Sunday school this Sunday. Last week we started a new format that allows us to really dig into the bible and apply it to our lives... we will be taking a look at the book of James for the next few weeks. Last week our lesson was called, "You've got issues," and we pulled apart James 1:1-18 and discussed the trials we deal with and how we can use those trials for good. This week our lesson is called, "You're my Favorite." We will be picking apart James 2: 1-13 and discussing favoritism, friendships, how we treat outsiders (people that are not in our group of friends).... it's gonna be good! We will meet in the youth room immediately following worship practice, which will be 9:15... please bring a bible if you have one and be ready to learn!... looking forward to seeing you there!


[01/21/15]   Hey Everybody! Do you want to know how Zombies compare to christians? Tonight we will be starting a series called, "The Walking Dead." It's gonna be good... can't wait to see you all!

[02/04/14]   Hey Everyone!!!

Have you ever been hurt by someone you trusted?

Has this hurt had an affect on other relationships in your life?

We are in Week Two of our series called, "What I learned on Mtv." This week, we will be taking a look at Points of Authority, or indicators of control and what role they take in our lives and in our personal relationships with friends and loved ones. We are going to check out what the Bible has to say about what forgiveness actually IS and what it IS NOT.

Don't miss out!

[12/05/12]   Hey Folks...
Last week we talked about how other people, especially those that are close to us, can stress us out and how to deal with it. Tonight we are wrapping up our series on stress by talking about something that we all deal with in some way... measuring up. We stress ourselves out daily by comparing our lives or ourselves with other people. We ask ourselves, "Why can't I be like them," or "Why can't I look like them." It's one of the biggest forms of stress that we deal with. Join us tonight for our final week in our STRESSED! Series called, "Measuring Up."

[11/28/12]   Hey Everyone!
Hope you all had the most bestest, awesomest, Thanksgiving ever! This week we will be continuing with our series STRESSED. Last time we talked about different ways we can deal with stress, and we also found out that one of the biggest stressors we deal with is ourselves! Tonight we'll dig into another huge stressor in our lives... OTHER PEOPLE! Join us for week 3 in our STRESSED series, "People=Stress."

[11/14/12]   Hey Everyone!!
So we learned last week that stress in our lives is inevitable, and that stress is God's sophisticated design to help us in tough situations. We also learned that stress doesn't go away, like it should and it causes physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual damage. Join us tonight for Part 2 of STRESSED! The Series called, "Reducing Your Stress." Hope to see you there!!!

- Brad

[11/07/12]   Hey Everyone!!!
How many of you would say that stress is a major part of your life? I think we can all agree it plays a major role in a lot of who we are and what we do. Sometimes it's really hard to deal with, but the good news is there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Tonight we are kicking off a four week series called, STRESSED! Part 1 is called, "Meet the Stressbuster!!" Hope to see you all tonight!
- Brad
