Come along with biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland in this 7-session study as she unpacks the life of the early church in the book of Acts and shows us that the kingdom of God is always on the move, always looking outward to bring meaning and joy to a world searching for true fulfillment and hope. Explore the call of Jesus to His disciples then and to us today, see how God’s Word can sustain us even in the most difficult of times, and embrace the transformative grace we experience as children of God in His kingdom of celebration.

Connect with a small group of other women in homes to continue Bible studies and fellowship. Select your preferred area of town and meeting time.
New Thrive Groups starting in February. Deadline to Register- February 5
Thrive Groups are a group of 6 women who gather 4 times for 2 hours around a table for a meal and conversation. They meet in a home or restaurant once a month.
What happens when 6 women gather around a table? They create a regular rhythm of connecting with a group of women. They cut through small talk and build deeper relationships. They give the opportunity for God to display His love to each woman. We as women need the friendship and support of one another in all stages of life! Around a table, we talk, laugh, connect, and share a feast for our hearts and nourishment for our bodies. We build community, dish out stories from our lives, and find Jesus joining us at the party.
