LIFT provides a short-term small group environment where individuals invest a season of their life to learning insights and skills that allow them to more fully participate in community. In addition, LIFT provides a safe environment where individuals can find community to help overcome a particular life-dominating struggle of sin or suffering. LIFT classes and workshops are not meant to be long-term substitutes for discipleship. Instead, LIFT seeks to help deal with immediate needs, with the goal of directing everyone to Lifegroup participation.
Below are some classes we offer:

"With My Whole Heart" Women's Bible Study
Have you ever felt like you didn’t know how to read or study God’s Word on your own? Have you ever struggled with spending time with the Lord consistently or felt "stuck" (or bored) when trying to read the Bible? Do you simply need some fresh encouragement and practical ideas for how to apply God’s Word to your everyday life? If you can answer ’yes’ to any of the above questions, then this study is for you! "With My Whole Heart" will take women on a five-week journey of seeking the Lord and the transformative power of His Word. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to the faith, or if you’ve been a Christian for many years, this is a study that will encourage and equip you to learn practical tips and ideas for studying God’s Word, living out your faith, and abiding in Christ.

Interpreting Romans Chapters 9-11
Pastor Chris Owens will lead you through the often-ignored chapters 9-11 of the Book of Romans. In these chapters, Paul writes about how Christians and Jews relate to the New Covenant and elements of the doctrine of personal salvation such as "Election". If you have wondered what phrases such as "All Israel will be saved" mean, this class will certainly interest you. Pastor Chris will help you gain knowledge of God’s plan of salvation for all of humanity while considering how God has worked in your own heart to bring you to Christ.
Curriculum: the Bible
