“Faith and Work”
- Does the sacred/secular split idea of work exist in your mind? How have you experienced it?
- Why does God matter in your work? Does the reality of God change the way you view your work?
- How can we demonstrate the value and dignity of all jobs in our workplace?

Grassroots Apologetics for Parents
Fellowship Hall | Thursday, September 8-December 1 | 7:30 pm
An astounding number of kids that were raised in Christian homes and attended church their whole lives reject Christianity because they no longer believe it’s true. This fall we will begin the first of two 12-week apologetic courses (for parents) using resources provided by GAP (Grassroots Apologetics for Parents). Let’s learn together how we can better prepare our kids spiritually and intellectually for the onslaught of postmodern culture and worldview that bombard them every day.
Sep 14, 2022 – Apr 27, 2023

Thursdays at 9:30 AM
Zoom Group During Thursday 9:30 AMLean In…to the Word…to Community
We are excited to begin this Tapestry year with you as we seek to understand what it means to Lean In to the Word, to Lean In to Community.
This year we will be studying both Galatians and James starting with Galatians in the fall.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at [email protected].
Is the daily, unrelenting grind of life, work and responsibility slowly turning your sweet, pleasant, patient, good-natured man selves into something, well, pretty much opposite that? Sounds like you could use a get-a-way, some perspective, fresh encouragement, and even some challenge for change. But, we’re not talking about going on a retreat, we’re talking about joining us on an advance—Men’s Advance 5.0!

Gender and Sexuality
September 11 – December 4, 2022
9:00 – 10:15 a.m.
Taught by members of the Board of Elders
As a follow-up to our spring 2022 Sunday school course, “Divine Design: God’s Plan for Men and Women,” we will revisit and dig deeper into how we should think about and respond to the issues of gender and sexuality. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides clear instructions on how we should live as believers, both in our own practice and in our response to others. We often hear conflicting messages about the morality of gender and sexual concerns. Join us as we explore the biblical teaching about how God instructs us to live, and how the Scriptures provide answers to the challenges we face today on these issues.
Isaiah (Part One—chapters 1 to 39)
September 11 – December 18, 2022
9:00 – 10:15 a.m.
Taught by Keith Howland
From before the creation of the world and the fall into sin, God had a plan to send his Son to be the Savior of his people. In the Old Testament, this plan is foretold with greatest clarity and detail in the prophecy of Isaiah.
Join us for Part One of this great book, which lays the foundation for the coming King. “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever….” (Isaiah 9:6-7a).
