Illustrated Bible Journaling
(no artistic experience necessary!)

Leader: Sara Merkel

Illustrated Bible journaling is a form of creative worship that allows you to engage with God’s Word in a new way.

You will learn how to visualize what God is speaking to you through His word and to illustrate that through a variety of skills, including colorful thematic notes, decorative lettering, and simple drawings. Supplies (which will be provided) consist of pens, pencils, colored pencils, watercolors, and wash tape. Each class will include a time of individual reading and prayer, followed by an opportunity to use the new techniques.

Foundations of the Christian Life

Leader: Mark Lents

Every good army trains before the battle. Since we are in a spiritual war, let’s sharpen our swords together. Whether you are a new believer or a seasoned saint, in this class, we will worship our Lord together by studying scripture and training our spirits to discern His Holy Spirit. Then, we will do mighty things for His glory in His kingdom in the days to come on the earth. Bring your Bible and the full armor of God. We need you in the fight.

GriefShare Ministry

Leaders: Scott & Cheryl Moore

GriefShare is a biblically based grief support group, with the gathering of the bereaved due to the death of a loved one. It is a 13 week cycle with topical subjects each week, such as “Is This Normal”, “Fearful & Overwhelmed”, along with “Hope & Resilience”. Our time together consists of small-group discussions, a video seminar, and the participant guide. You do not have to travel the journey of grief alone. Don’t allow anyone to tell you Christians don’t grieve…we do, but we grieve as those who have hope. Registration online at and the purchase of the workbook ($20) are required.
