COMMUNITY GROUPS -
SUNDAY NIGHT GROUP (all adults welcome) - Series: The Gospel of Mark by Francis Chan:
The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship. In this 11-part series on the Gospel of Mark, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship? This series works hand-in-hand with RightNow Media's The Gospel of Mark Study Guide, an in-depth study of Mark's gospel in a daily devotional format. To sign up, email email@example.com.

Starting Tuesday, September 17th, Finding Truth
Christians today face all kinds of challenges when it comes to understanding who they are and what they’re meant to do. There’s no shortage of options that claim to offer “truth.” If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves chasing after popular opinion, celebrity opinions, or the tug of our emotions all the while neglecting the unchanging truth found in Scripture. In this series you will be invited into the power and confidence that comes from anchoring your identity, purpose, and relationships in the truth of Scripture. You will also walk away with practical steps toward building your life on the firm foundation of the Bible.
