The Holy Spirit
Pastor Barry Braun

There are Biblical principles that are meant to shape how we relate to each other. Our God is a relational God. His influence on our lives will direct the “how to’s” for our human relationships. We believe in connection and this class will help us have the best connections possible. Mutual relationships, mentoring relationships, mending relationships, and ministering relationships will serve as an outline for this four-week class.

Pastor Steve Entz

Is your spiritual life flourishing? Is it all you hoped it would be? If not, there are some things you can do to nourish and enhance the spiritual growth process. In this class, we will discuss scripture, take a look at some fresh perspectives, and ask challenging questions.
