Location: 57th st. campus

Do you feel stuck with your money? Maybe you’ve tried a little of this and some of that, but none of it really worked. It’s time to get unstuck, to move forward. Join the nearly 6 million people who have learned the right way to manage money. It’s not magic. It’s not luck. It’s Financial Peace University: the life-changing money course that teaches you how to crush debt, invest in your future, and win with money like never before.


GriefShare

TBD


It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. Join us at GriefShare as we work through these feelings and questions together.


Champions Group

Leader: Sharon Bethke

Weekly on Thursdays at 7 pm


This is a small group Bible study for adults with intellectual differences. While the current trend in education is to include these individuals with their typical peers, one size does not always fit for everyone. Just as we all enjoy being part of a small-group Bible study where the others in the group share some commonality (such as a mom's group, singles group, etc) adults with developmental disabilities enjoy Bible study together, in fact they need it. In this group we will learn about God's love and grow in faith together.
