Studies are for you. Whether young or old, stay-at-home mom or corporate executive, single or married, man or woman—studies are for you. Studies give you a place to learn the Bible and grow with others so you become more like Jesus and are better equipped for the mission.
Core studies are designed to equip both men and women with comprehensive biblical and theological training. Men's studies and women's studies offer an environment in which you can study God's Word and explore its application with other men and women.
Registration for all studies opens Sunday, Aug 26, and closes Thursday, Sept 6.

How to Grow
Do you feel stagnant in your spiritual growth? This shouldn’t be the case. God intends for every Christian to grow to spiritual maturity. He gave us his Word so that we might know his will and he gave us his Spirit so that we might have his power in our quest to grow up into Jesus. This study will explore the basics of what the true Christian life is all about so that you can unlock the treasures God has for you in Christ.
