New Beginnings is a class of 40- to 60-year-olds. We have a group of rotating teachers and do several different studies a year. We are very active in supporting the church with volunteering and assisting with any needs. We also have social activities throughout the year including supper groups, picnics and Christmas Parties. For more information, contact Scott and Vicque White. Vicque57@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Fellowship is an important part of our faith. Coming together to support one another is an experience that allows us to learn and gain strength. Because gathering together is so important, beginning in February we are dedicating one of the upstairs Sunday school classrooms as an open space to be used by all for fellowship and more every Sunday starting at 9:45am. Everyone is welcome to bring a snack to share.
+ Pastors Eric and Rebecca will be available at The Connection Point to answer your questions about participating in the life of the church.
+ Pastor Rebecca will also host a conversation about prayer several times a month—all are welcome!

This 5-week curriculum primarily focuses on the Gospel of Matthew’s version of The Lord’s Prayer. Matthew located the prayer in the middle of Jesus’ teaching about crucial matters such as what it means to live out God’s blessings (called the Beatitudes), what it means to follow the law, loving one’s enemies, giving generously and secretly, where we get our true reward for doing God’s work, and the like. The Lord’s Prayer anchors his disciples in understanding of one of the most important teachings of Jesus found throughout the gospel—the Kingdom of God.
