Financial Peace University (FPU)

Dave Ramsey and FPU give you the one thing the average American family is missing in their money: a plan.

You’ve got to bring your “why.” The cost of this nine-week class has been subsidized to only cost $50. Wednesday’s at 6:30pm from March 1 – June 28th in the Outpost Building @ 4902 W. Chinden Blvd. Childcare will be available.

Easter Encounter Stories Needed

We are looking for Jesus (Easter) stories and Holy Spirit (Pentecost) stories. Life-changing stories of encounters with Jesus that changed the trajectory of your life. And stories of encounters with the Holy Spirit that empowered you to impact others for Christ (healing, prayer, word sharing… other assorted God moments.) We’ll be using these stories as we connect Easter to Pentecost and potentially share them on a Sunday morning. Upload your unpolished video; we’d like to hear your voice share your story.  For questions email Mitchell Maldonado.

Submit your story

 GO! Stories

This is the year we GO to GROW as people committed to making the invisible God visible. And we want to hear and share your GO stories! We want to hear how God moved you to go, where he led you to go, what he led you to do, whom he led you to impact in ways big or small. “The apostles returned and told him all that they had done.” GO and grow, and then come and share!
