Waiting is never easy, but we were never meant to idly bide our time. As followers of Jesus, how do we stay faithful and use these uncertain, seemingly impassible seasons to grow, glorify God and continue our Gospel call to spread the Good News? This week, we'll be looking at the life of David to recognize healthy and unhealthy ways to handle our times in the waiting room. Don't miss Week 5 of The Waiting Room!

Daniel Stevanus, our Student Ministry Director, will be speaking in the Auditorium for the Contemporary Worship services. Bryce Holdman, our Middle School Coordinator, will be speaking in the Sanctuary for the Traditional Worship services. We're looking forward to seeing you Sunday as we celebrate our students!




IF: Gathering
April 27
9:00 to 3:00

This is a generation that is not just hungry for big faith, but for a big faith that is lived out in the practical, mundane things we do and the decisions that we make every day. What does it look like to follow God and live out this faith in our relationships, at our jobs, in conflict, in suffering, with money? Faith can move mountains, but it can also change our everyday circumstances, so we are going to look at God's word to do that in one of the most practical, yet misunde rstood, books of the Bible - Proverbs. Proverbs doesn't show us a set of rules, but a different way to live that is so attractive, so fragrant, flowing through our lives, actions, relationships, and work, and drawing people to Christ. Together, we are going to discover what it looks like to do these things, not perfectly, but in good faith, trying our best to obey God and His way of life.  Registration Fee: $20. Register here.

Married People
 
We have three Married People events coming up soon. If you're unfamiliar with Married People, these are great opportunities to strengthen a marriage and enjoy  a fun, casual evening for couples to relax and laugh together.

April 10
Money is one of the biggest causes of conflict in every marriage. This happens because we enter marriage with different approaches to money. But when you start approaching money together, it can create connection. Talking about money forces you both to communicate and compromise.

April 24
Our individual issues can cause serious conflict in our marriages. It's much easier to sweep away the distracting cobwebs than to actually kill the spider causing them. In other words, we medicate surface-level issues without addressing deeper-root problems. But when we embrace God's plan for our life, we can kill the spider once and for all.

May 1
In marriage, we tend to have serious fights about silly things. That happens because we're really in conflict over something deeper. Women's insecurities around fear and men's weaknesses around shame play off one another in explosive ways. We can choose to handle these conflicts differently by remembering what's true about us as children of God.

Join us in the Auditorium for these evenings of fun and learning.
