What are the essential beliefs of Christianity? And how should a healthy understanding of doctrinal issues—like The Trinity, the Church, sin and salvation—impact the way we live and act toward God and others?
We will all face times where our faith will be challenged either by other people or by difficult circumstances. That's why it's critical that we have a foundational knowledge of the core beliefs of Christianity and a willing heart to obey God.
In these seven dynamic sessions, students share real-life stories about their own struggles to live out the essentials of their faith on a daily basis. Through this study, author Francis Chan provides powerful teaching from Scripture to help participants understand the core of their Christian faith.
Quest - Parenting in a Sexualized Culture
Leader: Rachel Ritter
A quest is “a long and difficult search for something,” and that's what a godly life in a sexualized culture is all about. This dynamic video series provides teaching, tools, and strategies that help parents navigate these questions:
What does the Bible say about sex? How do I talk to my kids about sex? How do I manage the technology invading our home? How do I lead my kids when I've made my own mistakes?
We truly are on a quest: a long, difficult, but ultimately glorious search for meaning, joy, healing, love and relationship with a faithful, holy God who draws near to us, even when we feel far from Him. All of us are on that journey, and in becoming parents, we have brought our children into that quest with us, whether we know it or not!
We are parenting in a new atmosphere and we need new tools and strategies as well as new levels of encouragement from one another.
Parents, you have what it takes to help your kids not just survive in a sexualized and digital age, but to thrive and lead others. Join us on this quest through God's Word of why He created us as sexual beings, how we are to steward this gift, and how we can share His story with our kids.

You And Me Forever
Leaders: Randy & Denise Smith
This seven session Bible study series, based on the book You and Me Forever from best-selling author Francis Chan and Lisa Chan, will challenge you to view your marriage like never before. These seven inspiring videos will help you dive deeper into the content of the book as you explore themes like:
It's until death do us part. Then comes eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives.
While we cannot allow lesser things to destroy our marriages, we also cannot allow marriage to distract us from greater things.
A jealous God asks us to pursue Him first and most. Then life makes sense, and everything falls into its proper place.
Love, laughter, and intimacy were all created to be enjoyed. So there is a way to love family deeply without ignoring heaven.
It all comes down to our focus.
Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage.
