Hey guys, do you ever find yourself struggling with finding time to "do devotions?" Is it hard to drum up the "umph" to have some meaningful time with God?

This is a study you won't want to miss as together, we dig into God's Word and discover what it means to be men on fire for God! You can sign up in the Connection Point.

Study of 2 Timothy by Beth Moore
We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life giving to keep to ourselves.
In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.

Each Tuesday evening, a group of believers gathers in downtown Elkhart to reach out and love on individuals and families in our community. Using the Revive model, teams head out to engage in conversations with people we encounter. Our goal is to show love, listen, discern, and respond with the hope-giving message of the gospel if God gives an opportunity. This outreach opportunity is open to anyone!
We gather on Tuesdays at 5:15. For questions, contact Michael Cataldo.
