In the beginning, God created one human. And in God’s sin-free, beautiful world, something wasn’t right. The human was alone. The creation of Eve isn’t just the story of marriage. It’s also the beginning of community. God exists in trinity and we were created for community.
And because our Father is generous, he’s given us one of the most essential and life-changing relationships for community: friendship.
Join us as we walk through this six-week study about friendship with Jennie Allen, Lauren Chandler, and Amena Brown.

HOW TO TALK ABOUT RACE AND PRIVILEGE- JADA EDWARDS
There is a lot to be said about the sin of racism and how it affects not only our country, but the universal church. The tragic history of race relations in the United States has made it difficult for people today to have effective conversations without feeling uncomfortable, guilty, or traumatized. We might all agree about the fact that racism is wrong, and even sinful, but how do we respond when there seems to be so much division and so many opinions on what to do about it? In this short clip, Bible teacher Jada Edwards expounds on a few common questions and responses we see from people regarding racism, oppression, and the current state of our country.
THE PARABLE OF THE BUILDERS- JONATHAN EVANS
Storms in life are inevitable. We all face them at some point or another. Our concerns cause us to run to what we believe will rescue us—and that’s not always God. Sometimes we look to our own strength, our bank account, our reputation, or a relationship. Storms always lead us to what we look to for salvation—and what we look to makes all the difference.
In this one-session series, pastor Jonathan Evans takes a fresh look at the Parable of the Builders and reminds us of the importance of building our lives on the solid foundation of God’s Word. We must dig deep and build our foundation on the rock of God’s Word. And when the storm comes, we must hold onto our loving Father who will carry us through to safety.
THE ART OF NEIGHBORING- DAVE RUNYON
What comes to mind when you think about your neighbors? Maybe you don’t know them very well or, if you’re honest, maybe you think the lady across the street is a bit weird. For many of us, it can be tempting to keep our distance and mind our own business in our neighborhood. But is that really how God wants us to live?
As followers of Jesus, we’ve been called to love both God and our neighbors. It’s easier said than done, but if we push past the fear, time barriers, and pride that can keep us from engaging with others, we can build deep connections with the people in our neighborhood and, most importantly, please God.
In this four-session series based on their book The Art of Neighboring, Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon help us focus on the people within our neighborhood and learn what it means to be a good neighbor. They discuss the importance of pushing through the uncomfortable feelings that come with communicating, investing in, and caring for the people who live near us. What would our communities look like if we took Jesus’s command to love our neighbors as ourselves seriously?
