Ways to “get from here to there.”
Here’s some gifts for growing.

We want to give you a monthly onramp to growing in the way of Jesus. The main ways of growth we offer come in our two main meetings every week, the Sunday Meeting and the Cell, but there are numerous opportunities for growth outside of these weekly meetings, opportunities that are a little deeper than simply another event. They are practical ways to “get from here to there” spiritually. Also, in addition to the below opportunities, we invite you to explore our Way of Jesus website which offers an organic cycle of spiritual development: earth, wind, fire, water. The Holy Spirit takes us where we need to grow.
