I hope you join us in our ministry as we seek to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ. I invite you to celebrate with us as we worship, study and enjoy nurturing new relationships.

Journey 101: Knowing God
Beginning the second week of November, we will begin offering Journey 101 small groups. You will have an opportunity to join groups led by our pastors and Christian Discipleship leaders. Journey 101 is a three-part series designed to help guide us on the journey of knowing, loving, and serving God. During the fall, the focus of each group will be on knowing God. Groups will meet for five sessions using a curriculum developed by The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. Tom, Kris and other leaders will tailor the program to help each participant grow in their faith. This series hopes to wrestle with the following questions, such as: How do we become more deeply committed to God? How do we allow our lives to be transformed? How should we, as deeply committed Christians, be serving in the world?
