DeeperLife classes are in-depth discipleship opportunities that are offered at other times beyond Sunday AM Groups. These courses are designed to challenge you toward maturity in your faith and to a greater knowledge of God's Word as you seek to be a follower of Christ (a disciple).
We seek to carry out our vision of disciples making discples through helping people establish four points of connection in their lives.
- Connect persons to Christ through faith and repentance.
- Establish persons in a mature faith and in authentic community.
- Equip and mentor persons toward sharing faith and serving others.
- Multiply opportunities to engage believers in making disciples.
FAll 2017 Deeper Life Classes
Book of Romans
Paul’s letter to the Romans is an inspired masterpiece of doctrine highlighting God’s grace, truth, and redemption. Within its pages, the apostle shares his message of good news and eternal salvation with the church, advises believers on theological truths, gives practical applications for living the Christian life, and shows how God’s righteousness comes by grace alone through faith in Christ. The book of Romans underscores that Christianity is far more than just a doctrine—it is an essential road map for daily living. (Part One)

Armor of God
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.
The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory. (7 Sessions)

Sharing Jesus (without freaking out)
What if someone told you evangelism is less about delivering a polished presentation and more about having a real conversation? What if someone told you that God has created you to bring glory to himself by sharing Jesus with others, and that you don’t need years of training to obey what he already made you to do?
God created you for his glory to advance his gospel with the gifts, talents, and opportunities he gave you. You live at this time in history for a purpose bigger than yourself. In this study you will discover how to connect the gospel story with your story, and how to talk about that story in normal conversations with people you know.
No gimmicks. Nothing clever. No need to freak out. Just you, Jesus, and others—in conversations that matter.
