Small Groups

JOSHUA 24 EXPERIENCE
Small Groups begin meeting the week of September 8 through October 13.

Join us this fall on a 6-week journey through the book of Joshua. Pastor John will be preaching each Sunday through the book of Joshua and you are invited to join a small group to further dig into God’s Word with others. Together as a faith family, each small group will reflect on the final words of Joshua. There are six faith actions that move us toward authentic Christ-following lives. The final chapter of Joshua encourages and challenges us to: REMEMBER where we have been, CHOOSE who we will serve, REPENT from where we are going, give WITNESS to what we believe, celebrate our spiritual LEGACY and finally to learn how to truly REST.
Date, time and location will vary based on each group.
