It is our desire to see the body of Christ come together, growing in their faith, and connecting with other believers. Life is hard to do by ourselves and we feel no one should ever have to do it alone. That is why we are starting Connecting Groups. We believe this will help us become a closer family and help the church make disciples!

This group is focused on bringing the men of the church closer to God and each other through prayer, study and open discussion. This quote by John Wesley is the inspiration for this group: “If I had 300 men who feared nothing but God, hated nothing but sin, and were determined to know nothing among men but Jesus Christ and Him crucified, I would set the world on fire.” *Speak with Mike or Jim for the location. They meet at either Jeff Burnett’s house or at the church.

Our self-image is damaged because we live in a sinful, fallen world where our self esteem needs are not met in the way God had intended when he created us. Satan has brainwashed us into believing his “truths” about ourselves rather than believing God’s truths. In this study you will learn how to allow the amazing love of God to cleanse and renew your mind, restoring your damaged self-image through a personal, intimate relationship with Him.
