Our Life Institute started in 2012 for the purpose of training and equipping people with a Biblical perspective on specific areas of life. Our goal is to run quarterly (or so) classes that minister and educate people on Finances, Parenting, Marriage, Apologetics (Defending the Christian Faith), and Evangelism, and we are looking forward to offering more tracks and topics in the future. Classes take place on Sunday nights from 5:30-7:00pm, childcare and AWANA clubs are available for children and the Youth Group meets for teenagers.
We’d love to have you join us for one or all of these classes. There is no charge to take the class; however, you will responsible to purchase any books or other materials that are needed for the class. Most books will be available for purchase the first night of class so no advance sign-up is needed.

Women’s Study: Women of the Word — Sharon Caughill
We all know it’s important to study God’s Word. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? Join us as we learn how to go deeper in our study of Scripture, and be equipped you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains our minds and transforms our hearts.
If you survey the religious landscape of modern culture, you will encounter an astonishingly diverse range of views. But beneath the surface, these seemingly disparate spiritualities share a common worldview, one that is radically opposed to the Christian faith.
12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You: Philip Von
Within a few years of its unveiling, the smartphone had become part of us, fully integrated into the daily patterns of our lives. Never offline, always within reach, we now wield in our hands a magic wand of technological power we have only begun to grasp. But it raises new enigmas, too. Nevermore connected, we seem to be growing more distant. Nevermore efficient, we have never been more distracted. Drawing from the insights of numerous thinkers, published studies, and his own research, writer Tony Reinke identifies twelve potent ways our smartphones have changed us—for good and bad—in his newest book.
