General - Multiply - John

When: Sunday, Evening    Where: 200 Block of East Cara Court Mountain House, CA 95391

"Follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19). From the start, God's design has been for every single disciple of Jesus to make disciples who make disciples until the gospel spreads to all peoples. Yet we have tragically taken this costly command of Christ to go, baptize, and teach all nations and mutated it into a comfortable call for Christians to come, be baptized, and listen in one location. Join us EVERY OTHER Sunday at 5pm as we learn how to become fishers of men. Our group will begin on Jan. 23rd.

Married - Vanishing Grace - Escobar

When: Sunday, Evening    Where: (2400 block) Garazi Street Tracy, CA 95304

NEW STUDY BEGINS - June 5, 2022. Christians have proclaimed the good news about Jesus for centuries. But the good news isn't sounding so good these days, at least to some. Many people view Christians as bearers of bad news, judgment, and intolerance. In Vanishing Grace, Philip Yancey acknowledges the problem and then explores how we can respond with both grace and truth. He offers a discerning look at what contributes to hostility toward Christians and suggests practical ways in which we can live as salt and light within a society that is radically changing. Our married couples group meets in person EVERY OTHER WEEK at 5:30 in Tracy.

"Be holy, for I am holy," commands God to His people. But what does that look like in everyday life? Because of grace we don't have to earn our salvation . . . but sometimes that leaves us wondering what our part in holiness should be.

Dive into Scripture and discover what it means to have - Holiness in body; Holiness in spirit; Habits of holiness; and Joy in holiness.

Young Marrieds- Forgotten God - Kaufmann

When: Sunday, Afternoon    Where: 800 Block of Lawn Court Tracy, CA 95304

In the name of the Father, the Son, and ... the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Let us open the gift. Join us on Sunday afternoons at 4pm.
