THE PASTOR'S STUDY
Pastor Steve's studies are for those who are eager to dive deeper into the meaning of the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, Christian theology and the integration of Bible and theology for real life applications real-life. The studies also explore the differing and broader religious themes which coexist in our global community.
Sometimes we need to get away from our everyday lives and normal routines to reconnect with God. Men's and Women's retreats offer a chance to not only rest, but through special speakers and programs, challenge us to connect on a deeper level with God, our brothers and sisters in Christ and ourselves.
