June 4, 2017Warring For The Spirit
We have a variety of classes to meet the different needs of our church body so that we all may be true followers of Christ. In our classes you will experience two of the most powerful forces in shaping your life: relevant teaching from the Word of God and lively interaction with the people of God.
We understand that the schedules of our congregation vary due to work, school, and family commitments. Therefore, meeting times are throughout the days and evenings of the week.
Every Sunday morning at 9:00 am we have a couple of different classes designed for anyone willing to come and find a place to grow in the Lord. New classes begin every three months but you can join a class at anytime while it is in progress.
Every Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm the adults meet in the sanctuary to study God’s word. Typically, we take a couple of months to go through an indepth study of a topic. Class led by Pastor Filener.
“Cells are open, evangelism-focused small groups that entwined into the life of the church. They meet… to build up each other as members of the body of the Christ, and to spread the gospel to those who don’t know Jesus. The ultimate goal of each cell is to multiple itself as the group grows through evangelism and then conversions this is how the new members are added to the church and the kingdom of God. Members of the cell groups also are encouraged to attend the celebration service of the entire church, where cells come together for worship.”

Study Based Groups
Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior! Where does He fit into your life? What do you believe in? What about other religions who claim to be Christian? How do they match up with the Bible or your beliefs? Have you been influenced, misled, or have you compared your believes with the Word of God? In essence, are you grounded? Without the Bible would you still have or know what faith is? We intend to challenge, encourage and hopefully reinforce what the Word of God has for you individually, and as a member of the family of believers worldwide. This is geared towards both new and mature believers, families and individuals. If you are curious or hungry to know how the Bible matches up with history, current events, and/or need a guide for healthy relationships as God intended, this is for you. Lead by Bruce Rivera on the first, second and fourth Sundays of each month from 6 – 8 pm in the sanctuary. Refreshments available.
