People buy imitations because they want the real thing at a cheaper price. It’s easy to do the same in our lives—settling for a cheapened version of our dating, marriage and family relationships. Join us as we learn to distinguish between knock-offs and the real thing.

Jesus wants us to live the good life. And the good life doesn’t have to be something we hope to achieve someday—we can enjoy it right here, right now. Join us this summer as we learn how following Jesus brings us the good life.

No matter our history or family of origin, we can all feel abandoned and alone. In the midst of life’s challenges, it’s easy to default to operating as emotional and spiritual orphans. But God has something better for us in store. Join us as we explore our true identities as God’s beloved sons and daughters, and take our place of honor at the Father’s table.
