Men aren't typically inclined to gather around deeply meaningful things. It's just a fact! We would rather have a cup of coffee with a few buddies and keep the conversation at a level we can easily control and navigate—things like last night's ballgame, the current state of politics or even business. Ultimately, when one of us experiences a crisis in our lives, we haven't got a clue whom to turn to. We can tell you this: that's a lonely place to be. We men need to connect! We need to do life together. Our current resources for connecting men are:
Links Players International These guys use the language of golf and understand many in this Valley. You don't have to be a golfer, but you'll be rubbing elbows with many who are. Our lead pastor is currently the president of this organization and many of our founding team are active as well. Many of these studies are seasonal. The current year-round studies are:

Church at the Red Door is layered beautifully with women who understand and love to minister to other women. Within the ranks of Church at the Red Door, we have women who have excelled for years as teachers, counselors and just simple confidants for life's journey. Do you have questions? Do you need a friend to walk alongside you in this life? We believe we have formed a women's group where you will find not only the answers to these questions, but deep and meaningful relationships as you go through the process.
This study will introduce you to the circumstances surroundng the birth of Jesus, remind you of God's faithfulness and power to fulfill his promises, and draw you more deeply into the love that brought Christ to earth.

Links Players International The women already have numerous groups here in the Valley, and they would love to connect with you; however, all these studies are currently seasonal.

There are studies held throughout the year; our fall study is "The Kingdom of God." This six-week journey looked at the kingdom of God, the church, and our mission. These three: kingdom, church, and mission must be understood in concert with one another to see the big picture. It is not just about our local church - as important as that is - but rather the bigger story of the coming and presence of the kingdom of God, His rule and reign (which is where the story begins and ends), and our place in the story. Please email Pastor Paul Berst if you are interested in hosting, facilitating, or receiving more information on our next study.
