Circle Up

Saturdays, 10 AM @ Valley Chapel • February 6, 2021 • Andy Stanley

A small group should be a community that supports the spiritual growth of every one of its members. But that's not automatic. To succeed, the leader and group members have to decide to build that kind of community together. This 4-week study will give you practical approaches to building healthy relationships and pursuing spiritual growth so you can make the most of your new group. This group is an intro to small groups. A four-week session to learn how a small group functions, their format, and/or how to lead a group in the future. Meet new people or get to know acquaintances better. We will meet on Saturday mornings at 10AM starting Feb 6th.

Revelation - CLASS IS FULL

Monday's, 7PM @ Valley Chapel • February 1, 2021 • Gary Towner

We think of the Revelation of John as a mysterious book about the end of the world, but what is it really all about? This thoroughly researched class will give an overview of the entire book, helping us better understand the hope and truth that lies within. This is an 8-10 week class that will meet weekly in 1-hour sessions on Mondays from 7-8PM starting Feb 1st This is a class you will want to commit to joining every week as the materials build on each other from week to week. "Gary has spent the last 2 years preparing this study. Diving into the thoughts of Christianity's best minds, he has gathered a well studied and deeply rooted exploration of this often misunderstood letter. You will not be disappointed" - Pastor Ryan

Piecemakers Quilt Group

We were made to create.

The Piecemakers Quilt Group has met most Fridays since 2006. We learn and practice the art of quilting as well as other handwork skills, believing that our creator God has given everyone the ability to create. At each meeting there is a short time of devotions which includes Scripture and prayer. Since its beginning, the Piecemakers have tried to live in community. We “rejoice with those who rejoice, we mourn with those who mourn,” both inside and outside group meetings. We welcome women who want to practice any handwork skills and who want to fellowship with other women. When: Ongoing - Fridays 10 am - 12 pm (or longer) Who: Anyone Details: Bring your own supplies
