Join us on Sundays at 9am.

Our equip classes are designed to do more than just fill you with knowledge. We pray that what you learn and experience in these groups leads to a stronger faith, stronger relationships, and a better knowledge of who you are in Christ.

Led by knowledgeable and passionate teachers and friends, each group is prepared to equip you with a better knowledge of God's Word and His plan for your life, wherever you're at. We hope you will join us for this hour of community (and coffee, of course)!

A gospel-driven, multi-generational ministry.

Often, there exists a gap between the needs of our world and the practical abilities of God’s people to meet those needs. Equip is created to step into this gap by developing leaders with Christ-centered, Bible-based training for everyday life. The goal is to assist Christ-followers in engaging thoughtfully and impactfully with the church and in the world around them.

Each season, a variety of classes will be offered that cover important areas of growth in the Christian life: knowing God, growing close to Him, serving Him, and sharing His good news with others. The Core Course will always be available, and you’re encouraged to attend it at least once, whether you’re new or a longtime member. This class will cover core information both about this church and the healthy Christian life.

the book of daniel
