Rooted in Jesus Fundraising Dinner

Ashton Hall
Rooted in Jesus is a group course in Christian discipleship written for use in Africa. It is the only material of its kind written especially for the use of ordinary African Christians, rather than translated from material developed for the West - where people face different problems and challenges in their Christian lives. Rooted in Jesus is supported by The Mathetes Trust, a UK registered charity, and recommended by the Anglican Communion.

Living the Christian Life

6-8pm Jan 19 - Feb 23
Ashton Hall

Our culture today is filled with many messages on how to live our lives. There are so many conflicting messages that it can be overwhelming and confusing. 
But in the midst of all the voices clamoring for our attention, there is the voice of Jesus. Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus sat on the mountainside, teaching his followers how to live out the life he was calling them to. 

Freedom in Christ Retreat

Feb 21-23
Harvey Cedars Bible Conference

Freedom in Christ is a 3-day retreat led by clergy and lay leaders from The Church of the Good Samaritan, and is under the spiritual leadership of Reverend Richard Morgan. The program was developed by the Lazarus Center in Ambridge, PA. 
The retreat combines biblical teaching, small group activities and private time to study and reflect. FIC is a retreat for those who are serious about growing in their relationship with Jesus as Savior and Lord.
