Adult Online Study Group

Philippians: Embracing Joy by Mark Batterson

Tuesdays | November 1 - December 6 | 7:00-8:15 PM

Facilitator:  Rebecca Marchiando
Sessions:  6

Joy is everywhere in the book of Philippians. The emotion that Paul poured out in his letter to the church in Philippi shines through in every one of its 104 verses...and Paul wrote it as a prisoner chained to a Roman guard.

What gives the Apostle Paul such resounding joy, even in the face of suffering and persecution? In this six-session study (streaming video included), bestselling author and pastor Mark Batterson serves as a tour guide on the letter to the Philippians; uncovering the major themes of joy, gratitude, unity, and purpose found in this inspiring letter.

Participation via Zoom.  Please register below or at the welcome center so we can send you Zoom information.

Men's Community Group

The Book of Galatians

Saturday | December 10 | 8:00 AM

Join us as we dive into the book of Galatians, one that contains some of the clearest explanations of the gospel in the New Testament, and discover that true freedom is found in surrender, not self-dependence. Because our gospel is not one based on our works, but faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Meets fireside at Faith, the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month.

Holiday Get Together
Monday | December 12     Wrap up before the holidays with treats and conversation

In a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others has a powerful impact on our well-being. We are meant to live known and loved. But so many are hiding behind emotional walls that we’re experiencing an epidemic of loneliness.

During this bible study we will look at our family, friends, and community relationships. What do we need to START doing to get closer to God? What do we need to STOP doing to get closer to God? Let’s meet and find out!

No registration or signup required. Just come.

Live Nativity at Faith!

Saturday | December 17 | 6:00 PM

This year, the spirit of Christmas will be alive at Faith, as we host our annual outdoor Live Nativity on Saturday, December 17th at 6:00 PM.  The journey will take you back in time to the birth of our Savior. Shepherds peacefully tend to their flocks, while Mary and Joseph look after the child in the manger. Wise men will come from the East bearing gifts as angels watch over the scene. Faith’s Live Nativity features a large cast, choir, live animals, and scenery to provide a memorable Christmas event for the entire family. During the performance as the story is told, visitors will be invited to join with the choir in singing traditional carols. After the performance, stay to have hot chocolate and cookies, enjoy the petting zoo, and get your very own nativity scene picture. It’s an experience that will bring the true meaning of the Christmas season for one and all!
