Next Steps: Discovery Workshop

We all have been given a specific gifting by God in order to live out the calling that He has placed on our lives. The only question is: How do we find out what that gifting is? At Step Two, we focus on learning who God has made us to be and discovering how He has gifted us.


We believe growth happens with that next step. We'll take it with you.

Next Steps guides you to discover your redemptive purpose and live the life God created for you. Next Steps is made up of three steps that equip you to follow Jesus and connect to the church, discover your purpose, and serve others.

Next Steps happens in three consecutive Sundays, starting with Get Connected Luncheon. We invite you to jump in at any time.
