2ECOND MILE

6PM SUNDAYS
OCTOBER 8 – NOVEMBER 26
@ THE GARDEN

When we go the second mile (Matthew 5:41) we develop ourselves as disciples of Christ, grow stronger families, and build up the local church body. We’re mixing things up for this 2econd Mile and everyone’s invited to come one Sunday, a few of them, or every time!

2econd Mile is 6pm at the Garden on the dates listed below.  Foodie Nights will state the dining establishment as the date gets closer, so watch for that. No need to sign up. Just show up to grow up! Be sure to bring something to take notes with and your Bible (or an app for that.)

Childcare is available for ages 8 weeks – 5th grade while their parents are participating in that evening’s 2econd Mile. Feel free to send a packed dinner or extra snacks for your child.

DREAM JAR

Part 1: 10/8
God wants us to dream BIG, God -sized dreams.  The Bible says to “Write the vision. Make it clear on tablets so that anyone can read it quickly.” (Habakkuk 2:2)  Vision and dreaming are so important to God. He wants to show up and show off in our lives. We will show you exactly how to write your vision down, and to dream, and see God at work in your lives. Join us and get excited to see God move!  (Part 2 is11/12)

MONEY GOD’S WAY

Part 1: 10/15
Part 2: 10/22
Money isn’t just paper and metals, or even plastic! It’s a spiritual substance with spiritual principles, yet most don’t see it correctly…the way God sees it. There’s wisdom in the Bible that can change the way we see, think about, and handle money. These concepts aren’t new, they’re thousands of years old. When we see money God’s way, we can live, bless, and sow God’s way!
