GROW THIS SUMMER IN SUMMER SESSIONS

Emergence Sessions are evening courses that equip us to walk as disciples of Jesus. They are designed to help you grow in your knowledge and love of God and to live wisely in his world.

This Summer, we'll offer these Summer Sessions:

Six weeks
All Mondays in July and the first Monday of August, 7 pm in Totowa
 
2 classes to choose from:
  • The Letters of Paul (taught by Doug Becker)
  • Christianity in a Secular Age (taught by Walt Windish & friends)—this is basically a fancy title for Apologetics pt. 2

If you'd like to be a part of Summer Sessions, register using the link below!

COLLEGE-ISH CONTINUES ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

Every year since we have existed as a church we've found that hundreds of college-aged young professionals often come marching through our doors each Summer ready to plug into community with one another and asking hard questions about God and faith.

We personally feel that it's the hardest questions in our lives that lead us to the goodness of God's truth, and so as a church, we gather each Summer in a ministry we call "College-ish" to open up the Bible and explore who Jesus is, and the true meaning of faith.

This year, we'll be diving into Scripture together in a six-part series on "Identity" as we explore what the Bible has to teach us about who we are, how we've been made, and what the true purpose of our lives are.
So, if you're between the ages of 18-25 (the College-ish age) and either have questions of your own, or just simply want to jump into a community of people seeking after Jesus, we'd love to invite you to join us this Summer for College-ish.

We'll be meeting together on Wednesday nights at 8pm in Totowa, starting Wednesday, June 5th. For more information you can check out the College-ish page by clicking the link below!
