Following the model of Jesus, we build relationships with people in three ways: one on one, one on some, and one on many. Through a series of specific classes aligned with our five values called Core Classes, we teach the basics of following Jesus (i.e. how to pray, how to study the Bible, how to serve, reach people, and worship). We take great joy in seeing you equipped, empowered, and engaged to live a life of purpose and influence… join us!
CORE 101: Connect
101 is a basic introduction to our church family and is designed to clearly explain who and what our church is. At the end of 101 you will have the opportunity to fill out, sign and submit the Membership Application, or wait until another time.
CORE 201: Grow
Do you want to become more like Jesus? 201 will help you develop the habits you need to jump-start your spiritual growth. It will give you an overview of the three basic spiritual habits every Christian needs in order to grow: Daily Time with God (prayer and Bible reading), Giving, and Fellowship.
CORE 301: Serve
God did not design ministry for just a few with seminary degrees. We believe that every member of our church is a minister. During 301 you will learn how God can use your Spiritual Gifts, your Heart (passions), your Abilities, your Personality and your Experiences to minister to the needs of others. When you chose to follow Christ, you were given special abilities, known as Spiritual Gifts. God gave you these gifts for you to use to build up His Church. God also gave you passion for particular activities and subject. Having the heart for specific things, people or circumstances is to be used to guide us into a ministry that we really care about. In 301, you will be shown how to assess your abilities, gifts and passions to see where in ministry you will love to serve.
CORE 401: Reach
God created you with a purpose. That personal, yet church-wide purpose, means connecting flawed human beings with our perfect and eternal God. Your own story of how God has worked in your life is one of the most effective tools you have for connecting people to God. You will learn how to communicate that story to your neighborhood, workplace and around the world. God’s global plan includes reaching people from every nation with the good news of Jesus. You’ll get a picture of what God is doing throughout the world to bring His people to Himself, and how you can be part of His global plan.
CORE 501: Worship
What does it mean to be a worshipper of Jesus? In Worship 501, we learn the biblical principles of worship as well as how and why we express the worship of Jesus in a corporate setting and in the individual growth of a believer.
