DISCOVER THE SECRET: FOCUS 2018 | Grab Your Free Book for January 21st & 28th

This year our FOCUS conference will take place over two Sundays, January 21 & 28. Our Sunday morning schedule will remain the same as usual, but we will engage in a church-wide study together on living a life characterized by generosity. If you are not currently a member of a Small Group Bible Study (BFT), this would be a great time to get connected! If you need some help finding the right group for you or your family, stop by the Connection Center.

Free Gift: As part of our emphasis this year on generosity and stewardship, we are handing out free copies of Randy Alcorn’s The Treasure Principle. This short book coincides with FOCUS 2018. It will lead you on a journey to rethink how you see life and the resources you have been given. Along the way, you will discover a joy that can only come from following Jesus and investing in His kingdom.
