We are a people who are committed to a lifestyle of consistent spiritual growth and honest accountability in community.
There are a number of resources we recommend to help you on your spiritual journey.
At OurChurch one of our values is Learn and Grow and we encourage everyone to be personally learning from the Bible and applying it to their life. The Holy Spirit desires to lead each of us on an individual path of revelation and growth.
In the Life Journal there is a reading plan for each day of the year. You can choose the level of reading that suits you. You can also access these reading plans through your mobile device (either apple or android) in two ways:
The OurChurch app (search OurChurch)

PARENTING BEYOND YOUR CAPACITY
If you don't already have this book - you need to get one. Engage your family in a bigger story, a story that involves more than just your family - one that involves other influences who are on a journey to discover why a relationship with God really matters. We want to encourage you to establish a lifestyle as a parent in which you....
- invite others to invest in your children so your sons and daughters have other voices that will help shape and determine the direction of their lives.
- create a culture of unconditional love to fuel the emotional and moral health of your children.
- tap into the power of quality moments together, building a sense of purpose through everyday experiences.
This isn't a self-help book. It's a get-help book. It's about how you can increase your parenting capacity by connecting with available resources, some of which you know about and some you might not.
