Men’s Ministry: Unfiltered Jesus

In this study, we will look at Jesus’ unfiltered character and unwavering commitment to follow the will of the Father. Filmed on location in Israel, we’ll experience Jesus’ life of dependence, faith, denial, love, obedience, and pursuit of people. Through these videos and our discussions, the end goal is that we too may reflect the life of Jesus unfiltered.

Womens’ Ministry: All Things New

Too many of us walk through life feeling like we don’t measure up. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough, and we don’t have to be. In this study of the gospel of John, discover how Jesus is more than enough and how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the living water He offers.
