REFRESH happens every Sunday Night from 4:30 – 6 pm for all students 6th-12th grade. This Sunday we are starting a new series called “Worlds Apart”.
- No two worlds seem further apart than the worlds of science and faith. In fact, sometimes the two seem so far apart that it feels like we have to pick a side. But, are science and faith really as far from each other as we’ve been led to believe? In this series, we’ll discover that the more we learn about the way the world works, the more we’ll learn about the One behind it all.
- WEEK 1: Science and faith can exist in the same space.
- WEEK 2: You can trust Someone before you know everything.
- WEEK 3: Build your faith on what matters most.

Faithful with Finances – A 30-Day Journey to “Well Done!” Too many of us spend the majority of our lives in pursuit of, in protection of, and stressed out about…money. Where can we go for a proper view of wealth and its purposes? For the Christian, the ‘go-to’ person for financial wisdom is Jesus himself. ‘Faithful With Finances’ will help you move toward contentment and financial peace.
