LifeStage Classes

LifeStage Classes

LifeStage Classes are our organized approach to biblically educate and equip each member. The goal is that we as a church would grow in our ability to understand the overarching truths of our God and His Word, as well as become skilled in applying a biblical framework for every aspect of our lives. 

The objectives of these classes are to promote:

  • Biblical literacy + theological understanding
  • Practical life-application + obedience
  • Mutual care + discipling
  • Leadership training + development
