grow groups

LifeGroups are communities where each member can feel welcomed, accepted, and cared for wherever they are in their faith journey.  LifeGroups are safe places where sharing is confidential, and where growth happens. LifeGroups meet in a variety of locations, sometimes in the church, in homes, or in the community.  Some groups opt to meet in person while others will continue to use a virtual platform.

Totally Forgiving God

This Bible study will focus upon the very tough and ancient question, "If God is so loving and so powerful then why did and why does He allow these painful and bad things to happen in my life and the life of others?"  Hopefully, this study will help us "forgive God" and help us help others "forgive God."  To help us in our study we will be reading from Kendall's book, Totally Forgiving God.  God's answer to our painful and most honest questions are found in Jesus on the cross.

Meets 2nd, 3rd, 4 & 5th of the month from 10 am to 12 noon via zoom
