If our Small Groups are meant to engage the heart and our services are meant to engage the soul, Common College is developed to engage the mind of every believer.
In small classrooms using teaching and class discussion, instructors who primarily teach at our local Christian high school invite people to engage the bible in an academic, yet approachable, manner.

IDENTITY – Where did I come from?
PURPOSE – Why am I here?
DESTINY – Where am I going after death?
