Rediscover Friendships at the springs

Have you noticed how meaningful, lasting friendships seem to be fading away in today’s world? It’s changing everywhere, and surprisingly, we’re getting used to it. Blame it on the endless scroll through social media, or maybe we’re just stuck in the way we’ve been doing things. The bottom line? We’re just not as close to each other as we used to be.
But here’s the silver lining: We’re starting to really feel the need for more genuine connections, and there is a reason for that. God designed us for community. He created us for friendships.

No one should, face cancer alone.  While we have witnessed many significant
advances in treating this devastating disease, nothing takes the place of the power,
inspiration, companionship, and connection that comes from community. Cancer
support groups are designed to help people cope with all aspects of cancer diagnosis
by providing a safe environment to share experiences and learn from others who
are facing similar obstacles. For more information
Tuesdays or Thursdays 6:30-8:00 via Zoom ONGOING

an optimistic view of the future and real hope for change.

Divorce Care

divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a

never faced before. DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these
challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. For more information check out

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a
spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many
people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when
you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward
rebuilding your life.

Nearly Wed / Newly Wed – Marriage Enrichment and Preparation
Your marriage is important to us and to God. Planning for and enriching your

this special workshop has been designed to allow your marriage to stand the test of
time and to be Christ-centered for many years to come.
Sunday Mornings, 10:15-11:30 STARTING 1/28
