GROW CLASS – Angels, Demons & Spiritual Warfare
Sunday’s through October 7, 8:45 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. // Join us for our next Grow Class, where we will study what the Bible teaches regarding angels, demons, and spiritual warfare.  As a supplement to our Ephesians series, this class is designed to equip us for battle.  We will tackle questions like, who are angels, who are demons, how do they relate to us, what is deliverance, and other questions? 

 

TRUTH QUEST FULL SERVICE
Truth Quest will welcome children to their own worship and ministry time, followed by teaching from The Gospel Project, which we’ve already been utilizing.  The Gospel Project takes kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture.
