Becoming ________

“Words processed only by our heads, words that come through the eye or ear gates but only go a few inches farther, don’t change us. It is the words that somehow arise within our spirit and then move into our soul and mind that change us.”  - Christian & Missionary President, Dr. John Stumbo

What does it mean to grow 'up?'  Do we relegate it too often to the mere act of a bigger number for our age or a few more inches in height in a child?  What if we looked at growth as a continual process of transformation that could make us more:


We have the power to choose how we want to live, so what do you want yours to say about you?  What impact do you want to have on your family, your friends, or co-workers?  

Becoming the best version of ourselves is not always easy; if we want to change how we walk through our days, it takes intention.  And that doesn't mean developing 'religious' activities or practices, because on their own they won't make a difference.  What will is understanding the power of relationship, and learning about the mission of a Man who put that first.  

Join us this summer as we examine what God's Word has to say about "becoming."  We'll take an honest look at the life of Jesus and what the Bible has to say about the challenge of growth and transformation, and provide you with practical steps you can use to spur the changes you want to make.  With some helpful instructions and support from those around us, we can tackle just about anything!  We all know there is enough negativity in this about spending Sundays with just might be surprised how encouraged and empowered you feel!
