Dinner at 6 PM / Study from 7-8:30 PM

No matter how much you and your spouse love each other, eventually you’re going to fight about something – sex, money, kids, time, in-laws. Have you disagreed about any of these? No matter what you’re in conflict about, it’s not fun. Feelings get hurt. Misunderstandings happen. Emotional walls go up. Hearts close down. It’s a real problem. But what if conflict was actually healthy for your relationship? This series can help you and your spouse see disagreements differently and use conflict to learn about each other and strengthen your marriage.

End Times: Olivet Discourse

Mixed LifeGroup, led by Dan and Michelle McCabe

In person at The Olive Branch

Mondays from 7:00-8:30 PM

What does the Bible say about the Rapture? Is the rapture the same thing as the second coming of Christ, or are they two different events? The End Times According to Jesus can be found in the Olivet Discourse. In this end times Video Bible Study series from Pastor Allen Nolin, we'll learn exactly what Jesus said, explain what He meant and why.

Sermon on the Mount

Women's LifeGroup, led by Michelle McCabe

In person at The Olive Branch

Wednesdays at 7:00 PM
Starting January 17 for 9 weeks

In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right—a study on blessedness; a reflection on the Lord’s Prayer; a discussion of religious devotion, money, ambition, and relationships. What if we navigated these three chapters in Matthew as they were originally heard? What if we read them as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about what it means to be a follower of Jesus?

What on Earth Am I Here For?
