Share Jesus Without Freaking Out

Burnsville Campus | Sundays 9:30 a.m. | Begins 9/30
Lakeville Campus | Sundays 9:00 a.m. | Begins 9/9

“What if I told you that God has already given you the skills you need to begin sharing the Good News of the Gospel today? Evangelism is less about a program and more about connecting with others as they try to understand the chaos of their daily lives.” Alvin Reid, author. “No gimmicks. Nothing clever. No need to freak out. Just you, Jesus, and others in conversations that matter.”

In God We Trust

Burnsville Campus | Sundays 11 a.m. | Begins 9/30

Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.” We are stewards and caretakers of all the God has given us, including our finances.

Art of Parenting

Lakeville Campus | Sundays 9 a.m. | Begins 9/9
As a parent, you are the number one influence on your children in every area of their life. For many busy parents and stepparents, it is common to treat raising children and practicing your own faith as two separate parts of life, yet they can be beautifully intertwined.  The best way to learn is from other parents who have applied timeless principles to the highs and lows of parenting. FamilyLife’s Art of Parenting™ does just that. 

Systematic Theology

Burnsville Campus | Saturdays 6:30 p.m. | Begins 9/8

The word theology often throws people for a loop. In reality, the very definition of the word theology is the study of God. As we open the Bible to learn about God’s character, attributes, promises, and His plan for us, we fall more deeply in love with the One who loves us deeply. We will systematically walk through God’s Word to see how we can know Him and make Him more known.

Berean Passport

Burnsville Campus | Sundays 9:30 a.m. | Begins 9/30

The strength of Berean is not how many people we can seat in our services, but how many can we send to the ends of the earth. Berean Passport is designed to remind us why we do missions, how we do missions, and where we do missions. If you are anticipating joining Berean on a short-term trip or project, you are highly encouraged to attend and participate to prepare to be sent.

Teach Me To: Pray

Burnsville Campus | Sundays 9:30 a.m. | Begins 9/30

“Prayer has to stop being the last resort and become a first resource," Dr. Wes Feltner. Prayer is a vital discipline that every Jesus follower must actively be engaged in. Prayer is more than just presenting needs and wants, it is an active form of communication that requires both talking and listening. The discipline of prayer's focus is to foster a desire to seek God first, rather than as a last resort.
