Gospel Explorers, 9:00 am

room 301

Gospel Explorers contact:

Leader:  Steve Ferguson


A group of believers, united in our love for Jesus, seeking spiritual growth to become disciple makers through exploring the gospel. Most attenders are parents with children ranging from preschool age all the way to adulthood, but we welcome new attenders of any life stage. Singles are welcome. Through December, our featured topic is “Gospel Project:  Prophets & Kings – God the Revealer and God the Pursuer.” Starting in January 2017, the Gospel Explorer's class will learn about God as our sustainer (Daniel, Ezra) and God as our provider (Ezra, Nehemiah, Malachi).

Weekly lessons use questions to facilitate discussion and spur thought about God’s Word. These discussions help us grow deeper in our relationship with Christ and with one another. We seek understanding of God's Word, share testimonies of God's faithfulness and work, and encourage application to our daily lives. We’re not always serious, though, often enjoying a good laugh together.

We value patient, forgiving, and loving community. We value everyone’s opinion and contribution to the discussion. We pray regularly for one another, believing in the power of prayer, spending the last 15 minutes of each class sharing prayer requests and praying.

Leader:  Bryce Landenberger


A gathering place for all ages seeking to grow and build each other up in faith and become disciple makers of Jesus Christ. Various members of the class serve as teachers and facilitators leading through studies and lively discussions of books of the Bible, current books and relevant topics. We are studying the Songs of the Servant from Isaiah. Beginning  January 8 through June 2017 we will be studying the Book of Genesis. One-week topics will be interspersed including an in-class social and updates on missionaries.

We have regular in-class socials and monthly lunches at the mall food court, as well as holiday gatherings. Service projects doing yard work at a local non-profit allow opportunities to develop spiritual gifts and build community.

Our purpose: "To prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up; until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."  Ephesians 4:12-13

Group devoted to the training, discipling and spiritual development of others. Seeking to direct all to become disciple makers of Jesus. We are in a series entitled  “Is God in Control of Everything?” through December. Beginning Sunday, January 22, all are welcome to join us for the  6-week Journey 101 Class - Exploring Christianity. Exploring Christianity is a 6–week class for those in the early stages of their spiritual journey. It will be based on the Operation Timothy study developed by the Christian Business Men's Committee.

The seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. (Matthew 13:23)

Good Soil is a new group planning to have regular times for people to connect and develop relationships with one another.

We want to establish a foundation in ourselves that we can use to aid others in the building of their own foundation, provide tools to equip us as effective disciple makers, and provide opportunities for each person to use their spiritual gifts, enriching the soil of our lives so the Word of God can grow and flourish and we can bear good fruit.

We are passionate about disciple making, especially in our children, and are looking to create connections to other families.
