• J-term 2 or J2

    In January, we offered a special series of classes for spiritual growth - we called it  J-Term. Now that we're halfway through the year, it's time for J2.  In July, we will be offering four different courses to help us grow:

    • as parents seeking to intentionally raise our families to bring God the greatest glory.
    • as stewards of not only our finances but also our time, talents and energy.
    • as leaders bent on hitting home runs with our lives.
    • and as children of God equipped to live at rest in the arms of God.

    We invite you to join us for J2, a mid-year refresher and challenge to spiritual growth.  Click here to register for J2 or for more information.
