LABS – or “Life and Bible Studies” – are designed to be experiential learning opportunities, driven by questions and fueled creative leadership. LABS are different from the “classes” you may have taken in the past because your questions and comments (not a teacher’s answers) drive the experience.
Your LABS leaders are knowledgeable in their fields, engaging in their approach, and committed to helping you. No matter what level of Bible knowledge or experience in Christian living you have, LABS can help you live a faithful, abundant, life. Each 5-week LABS session offers a variety of experiences from which to choose. Our goal is to make the offerings so attractive that you have trouble choosing which Lab to take!

Say "Yes" to God - How Do I Hear (and Follow) God's Leading?
Led by: Bryan and Timberly Eckelmann
Being close to God means communicating - even hearing from him and responding. But how? Join Pastor Bryan and Timberly Eckelmann as we look at four people in the Bible - Moses, Mary, John the disciple and Paul the Apostle - who heard and answered God's call in different life stages and circumstances. Through their example, we will learn how each of us can discern God's guidance and follow with confidence.
Led by: Julie Wood, Dan Wendell, and Mission leaders
