- We have no greater ally than our heavenly father. Jesus’ security & identity was based on his relationship with his father. We will be mining God's word to discover "How great is the love that the father has on us that we should be called children of God" no longer orphans, and to grow in knowledge and to experience "The Heart of the Father".
- Betrayal and Beyond is the sister group of Pure Desire (above) for women who have been betrayed by the sexual struggles of someone they love. Jesus tells us that it is when we let our pain, sorrow, and anger out that we can receive comfort. This group is a safe place where you can be real as you seek healing.
- Pure Desire is a men's group that provides support and direction for those struggling with sexual issues. If you have been afraid that the church is the last place you can be honest, think again. We provide a caring atmosphere where you can be open and honest and not feel you are alone in your struggles.
