Life's journey is a never ending adventure. Just when we think we have it all figured out, we turn another corner, and we face another challenge. This fall Growth Tracks are packed full of workshops and studies on doing life in the realities of this world. It's not always enough to know information, we also need to know what to do and how to do it!
Join our variety of teachers this Fall, both on Sundays, second service, and Wednesday nights for deep studies that answer the question 'What should I do?' Check out the list below for the specifics along with times and locations.
Please note the location, dates and times for each class as listed below.

Wednesday Fall Growth Tracks Schedule:
Understanding and Responding to Critical Race Theory - Youth CenterWednesday nights, 7:00 to 8:30, September 8, 15, 29, Oct 6
(In Person & Live Stream)
Pastor Dave, AnnaMarie Dandy, Pastor Bob Baynard
Over the past decade, Critical Social Justice Theory and now Critical Race Theory (CRT), has slowly pervaded into every area of culture. This ideology was unknown and inconsequential to most people in our culture because it was mostly taught as a “theory” in universities. However, in recent times, CRT has become a loud voice in society and the predominant ideology in all levels of business, government, media, the judicial system, and in education affecting how we think and live. CRT is indoctrinating our children to change the future from our Judeo/Christian values. It is also invading the church as a doctrine that is to be embraced. However, the tenets of CRT are not compatible with a Biblical worldview. These two views are opposed in their understanding of ultimate reality, power, authority, human nature, morality, and much more.
