All Church Study and Worship Series

on The Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations

September 28th-November 2nd

What's This All About?

For five weeks, we will be studying the book, Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations by Robert Schnase.  We will study the book in worship, Sunday School Classes, Small Groups, and will experience some of the practices first hand through community events.


The purpose is to give ourselves an opportunity for creative change and growth in our life together and in our ministry into our community by breaking down the mission of the church into essential and achievable tasks.
