Sunday Morning Life-Stage Classes
Pastor Dan King (480) 515-4673
There are certain times in life when a person feels like they need to connect with others who may be going through some of the same issues they are. This is the purpose of our Life-Stage Classes.
Families with Young Children - 9:00am - Cottonwood Room
A group of adults with children from birth through elementary school who meet together to learn how to build strong marriages, strong families and a strong personal faith.
Spiritual Parenting (May 5th - June 9th)
It's hard enough to train kids to behave, but good behavior isn't what Jesus calls for in the Bible. He wants hearts and souls that are shaped in vibrant faith and love toward God and others. How can parents cultivate this in their children? This study empowers parents to be the primary nurturers of their children's faith and teaches them how to create a home environment God can use to work in their children's lives. Families will be transformed as they learn how to create space for God-encounters in everyday life.
Join together with other parents who have young children while learning biblical skills for raising families, strengthening marriages/relationships and growing their relationship with Christ. What a great opportunity to meet new friends. Hope to see you Sunday!
Have more questions? Contact David or Jessica Bein via email.
Parents of Tweens and Teens - 9:00am - Prescott Room
A gathering of parents who have middle and high school students who together are learning biblical skills for raising teenagers, strengthening marriages/relationships and growing in their relationship with Christ.
Current Class: The Forgotten God (April 28th - June 9th) Led by Kent Taylor
Ever had any questions about the Holy Spirit (or the Holy Ghost)? What does it mean to have your life lead by God? What does it mean to have His power in your life? This a practical investigation of the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives. While your students are in their groups, why not join an adult group with others who, like you, are parents of tweens and/or teens?

Crossroads - 9:00am - Flagstaff Room
A class for busy adults in their 40's and 50's
Current Study: We Are Church (by Francis Chan) (May 5th - June 2nd) Led by Dan King
Are we doing church the way the Bible instructs us? Are we supposed to gather in a building once a week to sing a few songs and hear someone else talk about God? Are we really supposed to take Communion facing forward in silence, eating dry wafers and drinking wine from tiny plastic cups? Is that the church Jesus asked His followers to create?
In this bold new small group study, Francis Chan takes on the practical aspects of the church, distilling the reality of God’s design for the church into foundational truths that will challenge Christians to become the church described in Scripture. Hope you will join us!
