RECHARGE THIS FALL
August 30th • 6:30 – 8:00 PM • The Gym
We are so excited to have ReCharge back this Fall! If you haven’t checked ReCharge out yet, now is the perfect time to try something new! ReCharge is a time for children in grades 1st-4th to gather mid week for fellowship, large group games, and small group discussions during the school year. At our ReCharge kickoff this year we will provide pizza as a snack and an exciting GLOW PARTY to close the evening. We encourage each of you to wear something that is neon, black light reactive, or glow in the dark for our first night back together for the 2023-2024 school year.
Kids start in the Gym and rotate through the night by grade level. ReCharge invites us to expand our hearts and minds. This is an opportunity for children to spend more time engaging with the Bible and expanding on the Lessons we learn together on Sunday in Ignite. Hope to see you there!
We love for YOU to join the fun of being on our ReCharge Serving team! Ways to serve: snack team, small group leaders, and large group/game time helpers. If you would like to be a part of the ReCharge serving team email us at email@example.com and we will get you plugged in.

REFRESH WOMEN’S STUDY – LUKE
September 6th • 6:30 – 8:00 PM • Chapel
Do you struggle with feeling like you aren’t enough? Then this is a study for you! The great news woven throughout the Gospel according to Luke is that perfection is not a prerequisite for a deep and personal relationship with Jesus. The Gospel of Luke is no Cinderella story, but the story of a Savior working in and through the lives of those who feel left behind, forgotten, invisible, and rejected. It’s where outliers, outcasts, the least of these, and those others would call unlovely become the beloved bride of Christ. Refresh Women’s Ministry is excited for this brand new fall study. Written by Lisa Harper, join us for an 8-week Bible study of a literary masterpiece that doesn’t celebrate the elite, but embraces the outliers, outcasts, and overlooked! You’re invited to run into the arms of Jesus and experience the fullness of his gut-level compassion unlike any other love you will ever know. Please register Here.
PASTORS BIBLE STUDY
September 13th • 9:30 – 10:30 AM • Chapel
Pastors Bible Study is starting back up in the fall and we would love for you to join us! Beginning on Wednesday, September 13th, Pastor David will be leading us through the book of James along with our other pastors throughout the fall semester. This one hour study is a perfect way to journey through the book of James. No need to preregister or sign up, you just need to bring your Bible.
