• Wednesday Night Study Series ~
    All The Places To Go...How Will You Know?
    Very rarely in the Bible does God command someone to stay. He opens a door,
    and then he invites us to walk through it into the unknown. And how we choose to
    respond will ultimately determine the lives we will lead and the people we will
    become. In this six-session video curriculum, bestselling author John Ortberg
    opens our eyes to the countless open doors God places before us every day,
    teaches us how to recognize them, and gives us the encouragement to step out
    in faith and embrace all of the extraordinary opportunities that await.  Join us for
    this new mid-week study at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall.
