Sometimes life is interrupted. Plans get changed, routines get upended, and expectations go unmet. Disruptions may or may not be caused by God, but all disruptions can be used by God. How do you handle disruption? The Bible gives us wisdom and guidance for dealing with the unexpected in life.
The father of the prodigal scanned the horizon, longing for his free-spirited child to come home. When he finally did return, the boy was met with celebratory love and acceptance. If you have walked away from God or the church, or if you are considering taking a break from “organized religion,” this series of messages is for you. Reconsider and reclaim your inheritance in God’s family!

God often makes and develops disciples in the context of meaningful conversations and connections. Jesus made disciples by doing life with a handful of people. To help facilitate meaningful conversations and connections, we are promoting three important initiatives in support of our God-given mission to make disciples: Discovery Bible Study (DBS), Mentoring & Shared Experiences.
Discovery Bible Study
A simple and proven method of Bible study, prayer and discipleship among 2-4 people. Open God’s word with other Christians or seekers, discuss eight simple, yet meaningful, questions, and pray for each other.
Pick up one of the DBS bookmarks in the lobby or here (pdf) and start today!
For more information on DBS, contact Randy
One-on-one monthly meetings with a mentor and mentee designed to build intergenerational relationships and to strengthen disciples. Mentoring follows Jesus’ model for disciple-making, enables both participants to be encouraged and grow in their faith, and provides a platform for meaningful conversations to occur.
Shared Experience Groups
People with similar interest coming together periodically to build stronger connections and disciple each other while doing a specific activity together.
Here is a current list of Shared Experience Groups.
