We are a group of friendly people who together desire a deeper relationship with Jesus. Our Bible studies are selected to focus on knowing Christ through the Scriptures and applying His teaching to our lives in a meaningful way. We enjoy times of rich fellowship as we discuss, learn, challenge and support each other in our journey to know Jesus. If you are looking for Godly friendships and an environment where you can be yourself then this group is for you!

What to Expect

The study is 7 sessions.  In the first session, we will get to know one another and watch a video.  Each session thereafter, we will have a discussion using our workbook followed by watching a video.  The study videos are presented by Lisa Harper.  The study workbook is a tool that help us gain a deeper meaning about what we learn from the video through scripture and answering questions.
