The Beyond churchwide study is an opportunity for us to allow God to take us beyond the limitations that we place on him and the fears and doubts which hold us back from the life God intended. Using a combination of Sunday morning messages, Sunday evening discussions, and daily devotionals, we will explore what the Bible teaches about how God leads us beyond the barriers to a growing, thriving faith. It all begins Sunday, October 6!
Each Sunday morning during the Beyond churchwide study, one of our pastors will be teaching on the topic for the day. On Sunday evenings at 6:30 pm, we'll gather in the Fellowship Hall for further teaching and discussion around tables. These will be informal discussions with no special Bible knowledge required. We're simply sharing what we're learning along the way and thinking together about how we can grow as followers of Jesus. The teaching schedule will look like this:
- October 6 - God can take you beyond the limits you place on him.
- October 13 - God can see beyond your sin.
- October 20 - God can move beyond your past.
- October 27 - God can carry you beyond your fear.
- November 3 - God can bless you beyond your expectations.
- November 10 - God can lead you beyond the limits of your faith.

We will have programming for all ages during the Beyond churchwide study. In addition to our Sunday morning Kids' Ministry, Sunday evenings will include the whole family. Adults and students (JH/HS) will be in the Fellowship Hall together for teaching but will have separate discussion groups. Our Kids' Ministry will provide teaching for Elementary and Preschool ages and a nursery available for little ones.
The Beyond study involves significant content. In addition to the teaching on Sundays, the following are available for download:
- Daily Devotions - These brief devotions were written by our pastors to allow Scripture to reinforce the lessons that we're learning on Sunday. If you would like to receive a daily email with the Beyond devotions, click here.
