Sunday Nights in the Fall

This fall we’re gathering together on Sunday nights for study and fellowship. Pastor Chip Stevens is leading a study through Song of Solomon for everyone college-age and up. This is for anyone: single, in a relationship, about to be married, or married. Tom Washburn is leading a study on the Beatitudes as part of Sunday Night Classics. Students enjoy a time of bible study and discipleship, and children have a dynamic worship time in KidsJam. Dive in the Hive gives our preschoolers a time of playing games with purpose and diving into God’s truth.

Repeats: When God shows us things in His Word more than once

Women’s Bible Study led by Melodie Tunney

Wednesdays • 6:00 pm • E423

Just as we use repetition to communicate something important to us, over and over the Bible repeats itself in order to get our attention and make sure we are absorbing God’s truths! In scripture, there are words, phrases, and ideas that are mentioned numerous times – and there is great purpose in the repetition. Join us for this study of Repeats – When God shows us things in His Word more than once.
