During this season of social distancing, we are excited to offer our members
online opportunities to learn and grow from home.
See below for ways you and your family can connect with God, the Word, and each other.



  • Amplify Media
    Amplify Media is an online resource for all ages. It works on many different platforms (Roku, Amazon, Google Play and a smartphone app). Adults can take advantage of video studies with accompanying links to digital curriculum or study guides. If you’re an adult, this is a great way for you to learn on your own, with a friend, or a group that wants to ZOOM together over a series. Amplify Media is also great for families with children. If you are looking for additional ways to teach from home, create an account and use the videos with your children.
