  • 2. We, as a church, are here to unleash the transforming influence of Jesus in PV, the Northland and beyond. Jesus transforms one heart at a time. Are you ready to open yours? Life is messy, and tough topics and big ideas aren’t meant to be tackled alone. We need each other to grow and thrive. The studies offered this semester will cover topics about marriage and family, care and support needs, and personal spiritual growth. Do you need some encouragement in these areas? Do you need the reminder that we aren’t in this alone? In every journey, there is a next step. That’s true for your spiritual journey too. Whether you’re exploring what it means to have a relationship with Jesus or you are excited to know Him better, we want to walk with you. So I invite you to take the next step. Consider this booklet a road map of opportunities where we can grow together. In these studies, you will meet new people, share your story and open yourself up to the possibility of a transformed heart. It may feel risky at first, but when we do life together, we begin to realize that Jesus meets us wherever we are in the journey. EXPLORING DECIDING GROWING REACHING
