The best spiritual training happens in the context of community groups with other believers in Jesus. Each community group revolves around the Word of God, a meal, and friendship. To sign up for a group or find out more information, please email the community group leader of the group that you are interested in. We also host trainings on a regular basis for those who want to lead their own group. Keep your eye on the calendar for the next training.

Devoted to One Another: Building Strong Relationships (Family-friendly)
Jeff & Lane Morrell, firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuesdays, 7 PM, Sept. 7 – Dec. 14
With great fellowship time over a meal, our goal is for everybody to really get to know each other, have some laughs and good talks, to become family over time. After the meal, we’ll have a Bible discussion – usually around the sermon from the previous Sunday, but sometimes over a topic we feel led to talk about. The newcomer who is just starting to seek God is always welcome, as well as seasoned Christians, single or married – we never want anybody to feel unwelcome or intimidated.

Mene Mene Tekel: Courageous Faith when the Writing is on the Wall (Adults Only)
Jay & Jan Inman, firstname.lastname@example.org
Sundays, 6:15 PM, Sept. 19 – Nov. 14,
We want to take students on a journey that ranges across seven turnings. From the Reformation to today, Western Civilization has survived six awakening/crises turnings. I believe we are in the seventh crises turning of Western Civilization in general and the English-speaking people, in particular. Our focus on Scripture will traverse the seven churches of Asia in Rev. 2-3, the seven parables of Matt 13, and the seven crises turnings of Ancient Israel. The focus is on helping people be like the sons of Issachar, discerning the times of our seventh crises turning.

Monthly on a Sat., 7 AM, Sept. 18 – Dec. 14
I’m Al Andersen and I have a passion for hiking. On the first Saturday of every month, I’m going to lead a hike on the Colorado Springs/Monument/Palmer Lake front range. They will last 2-4 hours, cover 5-7 miles, and include 1200-2000 feet vertical climb. Each month will be different and I’ll explain trails and the surrounding areas as we hike each trail. From log cabin remains to mining remains to air plane crash sites; there will be something different each month. This is a great way to connect to with other men. See you at the trail head…
