Home Church – LaunchingWeek of August 25
We are created for relationships – a relationship with our Creator and those He created. As disciples of Jesus we are to grow those relationships, encourage one another, and do life with other believers while reaching out to those not in the Family. Home Church, Fellowship’s small group ministry, 
is where this happens. Through weekly prayer, study, and consistent community, we see our body connecting, growing, and serving. Most Home Churches meet Sunday or Wednesday night, so mark your calendar now to prioritize relationships that will help fuel your spiritual growth.  Child care is available for kids Birth – 4th grade for a flat fee of $35 per month. 

Fellowship Equipping Classes Coming Fall 2019
Fellowship’s mission is to invite people to enter God’s story, equipping and releasing them to become reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ.  As a church who takes the mission to equip our body seriously, we are excited to announce an opportunity to further invest in your growth.  This fall we will be launching an Equipping Ministry that will include courses in marriage, parenting, finances, Bible study, prayer, apologetics and many others.  These will be multi-week courses where you can invest in your spiritual health as you continue in your faith journey. Information will be coming soon with all the details you need to register for a Fall or Spring course.
