The three classes above will combine to study John Ortberg’s “All the Places to Go… How Will You Know?” and immerse themselves in the Open Doors campaign. This Bible study and video curriculum is designed to help open our eyes to the many open doors God sets before us throughout our lives.

Grief Support Group @ Room 209
Oct 19 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

How do you understand grief when your heart is broken by the death of a loved one?
To survive and live forward, those who grieve must find answers. Beyond the Broken Heart is a support group for those who are grieving the death of a loved one and are in need of a community to share the loneliness of grief. Scriptural wisdom will be used to explore issues of grief and offer spiritual encouragement for a life of renewed hope and joy. The group will also offer some specific coping strategies to guide the way back to fullness of life. If you are grieving the death of a loved one, please join us on the journey through grief. Stephen Ministers will attend each meeting and they will be available for individual support. For information, contact John Campbell at
