  • FAITH LINK

    In the midst of busyness and a constantly changing world, we can hold on to the truth- God’s Word is alive, active, and has the power to transform lives when we engage with it. God’s Word comes alive to people in different ways. Learning together gives us the opportunity to learn not only directly from the Bible through the Holy Spirit, but also from the insights of what others are learning. The discussion-centered sharing provides an opportunity to build authentic relationships with others.


    The Bible Engagement Project is a discipleship system built to strengthen families and relationships, deepen knowledge and appreciation of scripture, and to root your family and church in God’s Word. If you have kids or teens, they will be learning the same scripture each week as our class but on their level making it easier to continue the conversation and discipleship process at home.  


    MEETS:  Sundays, 9:30AM

    LOCATION:  In Person in Room 18, and Online

  • Men’s Study: The 5 Masculine Instincts

    Your masculine instincts are neither curse nor virtue. They can not be ignored nor indulged. They are the raw material and experiences by which you develop a new and better instinct—an instinct of faith. (if it’s too long take out this first paragraph)


    It’s no secret: today’s men face a dilemma. Our culture tells them that their instincts are either toxic or salvific. Through this book and examining the lives of fire men of the Bible, you’ll discover your own instincts are neither curse nor virtue. They are the experiences by which you develop a new and better instinct—an instinct of faith. Through exploring sarcasm, adventure, ambition, reputation, and apathy, The 5 Masculine Instincts shows you how to better understand yourself and how your own instincts can be matured into something better. This is the path by which we become better men. Book: $15

    Our study kicks-off with a men’s breakfast on March 19th.


    MEETS: Saturdays 8:00 AM-9:30 AM, beginning March 19th

    LOCATION: In person in Bel Air and with online available

  • Sisters by Grace

    Women are invited to join us for study, worship, prayer, and community. When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan, we assume our life should follow, we're more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It's then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, join Lysa Terkeurst in Israel as she

    honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the

    deeply applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God. Book: $17
