Don't Settle for Christian
SUNDAY, JANUARY 24- SUNDAY, MARCH 14
The title "Christian" means different things to different people. For some, it represents alignment with certain political beliefs. For others, it represents closed-mindedness or intolerance. For still others, it represents a rich faith tradition. What if none of these are accurate? Join us for Don't Settle for Christian! During this series, we will study what it really means to be a Christian, specifically exploring the one descriptive word Jesus gave His followers that should define them. We're confident this series will challenge and encourage you, whether you've been following Jesus for 50 years or 15 minutes.
You also have the opportunity to host or participate in a Don't Settle for Christian small group. Something special happens in our church as we all focus our hearts on the same topic. You won't want to miss this challenging discovery of Jesus' definition.

The Don’t Settle for Christian experience is extending beyond Sunday mornings and into the week through small groups. We believe that life is better together and we encourage you to participate in the 8-week small group study where you will be able to engage and apply the principles to your own life and connect in Christ-entered community. The interactive curriculum includes a small group video, followed by a guided discussion time.
Hosts open their homes for people to gather for this video-driven small group study. Or you can host via Zoom to offer an online group. Would you like to step out in faith as a host? If so, click on the link below.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 24- SUNDAY, MARCH 14 | Student Sunday Nights | 5:00 PM
What does it mean to be a "true follower" of Jesus? How can students show their commitment to Him and live out His purpose for their lives? True Follower is the student version of the adult series which will also be 8 weeks starting January 24. During this series, students (6th-12th graders) will explore what a true follower—a disciple—of Jesus looks like. Students will also have the opportunity to join a small group for this series. No sign-up needed. Just join us for Student Sunday Nights at 5:00 pm in our Auditorium. Students will be in groups based on grade and gender.
SMALL GROUP VIDEO LESSONS
