Topical Study

This group is for men of all ages looking to grow closer to Christ. We are not called to be faithful in the major milestones of life, but rather the 10,000 little steps in between each milestone. Let’s explore more about what this means, and also dive deeper into the different aspects of living a Christ-centered life.
