Spiritual Growth

We want to help inspire you to live the life God dreams for you as we spread His love in ever-widening circles. Following the way of Jesus starts with a decision. Growing more like Him takes (1) intentionality, (2) is communal, (3) requires our engagement, (4) is ultimately accomplished by the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives, (5) is for the glory of God, for our benefit and for the service of others. To do this, our pastoral team develops a specific plan to help people follow the way of Jesus, which includes a new spiritual growth theme each Trimester, a Bible reading plan, a recommended reading, and opportunities to commit to community and weekly worship.

TRIMESTER 3 | 2023



The Lordship of Christ in a Christian is built upon the fact that Christ is preeminent in everything. Join us as Pastor Terry A. Smith teaches us how we can go beyond discipleship to make Christ first and foremost in everything and live a life that reflects it.



 Stewardship is managing God’s blessings God’s ways for God’s glory. In this series we will understand that we are stewards (managers, custodians) of what belongs to God. He is the Owner; we own nothing. As stewards, we answer to the Owner for what He has entrusted to us.



What does it really mean to worship God?  Scripture informs us we are to give ourselves in self-sacrificial service to God every day, every hour, every minute. In addition, the Holy Spirit enables us to do so. In this worship series, we will explore the true meaning of worship and how it should be applied beyond Sunday mornings. 

Week of Prayer & Fasting | Sept. 17-24th

Join us for a Week of Prayer & Fasting - learn more about this practice by downloading our guide below.

Grow in your life with God.


Scripture tells us the story of God working out His plan to redeem the world. When we read scripture, we find our place in God’s story, and we learn about how to live within the story.

Bible Lessons


Holier Than Thou - Jackie Hill Perry

In Holier than Thou, Jackie Hill Perry walks us through Scripture, shaking the dust off of “holy” as we’ve come to know it and revealing it for what it really is: good news. In these pages, we will see that God is not like us. He is different. He is holy. And that’s exactly what makes Him trustworthy. You can pick up a copy of Holier Than Thou - by Jackie Hill Perry in the Resource Lounge at the West Orange Campus on Sundays or from any online retailer.

Colorful Books

Participate in life together.


Hebrews 10:25 "We should not stop gathering together with other believers, as some are in the habit of doing. Instead, we must continue to encourage each other..." Sunday worship experiences are the primary way we gather as a church to worship together, learn from the teaching, pray for one another, and grow in our faith. We encourage you to commit to attending one of our services at either our West Orange Campus or Online Campus.


LIFE GROUPS - Launch week of Sept. 17th

Life Groups are the way we gather during the week to connect in meaningful ways in a smaller group environment. We eat together, pray for one another, and share life together. It is in these ordinary rhythms of life that we grow in our faith together. Life Groups meet both online and in-person and are centered on either learning, activities or the Sunday teaching. 



Discover all the meaningful ways you can care for others, develop new skills or use your gifts by serving on a team. There are many opportunities for you to serve on Sundays and throughout the week.
