God wants us to love him with our hearts, souls, strength and minds. To help us flourish in these four areas, we offer several ways to learn and grow outside the normal weekend gatherings. 



Looking for ways to grow in your discipleship of Jesus?

Then a House of Learning class is for you! With eight classes planned for this fall, there are lots of opportunities to deepen your understanding of what it looks like to be a follower of Jesus.

holy spirit class resources

This two session class took us on a pretty fast journey through who the Spirit is, and what he does. We explored the person the Spirit is in the trinity, and some of the things that are unique to him. We followed the work of the Spirit in the world, introducing us to Jesus, being instrumental in rescuing us from darkness and making us anew as part of God's family. We ended by looking at the Spirit's mission, and how things like gifts and calling fit into us joining with the Spirit and living life with him.

If you missed the class, you can catch the recordings below, and there are also some notes you might find helpful to follow along.

We believe the Scriptures are inspired and authoritative. The Bible is not a rulebook. It’s more than principles for a better life. It’s better than simply a manifesto for the Kingdom of God. The Bible is a story — the meta-narrative of God’s redemptive work in creation. We want to know the Bible well. We'd like to recommend that everyone gets into a reading plan, and we love the Read Scripture App, which includes some great resources from our friends at The Bible Project.
