Veritas is excited to launch the first series of our Veritas: Equip classes, where our leaders will seek “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,” (Eph 4:12). This “building up” of the body of Christ is two-fold, as we seek to grow in depth of maturity in our love for God and one another, as well as multiply our number by seeking and evangelizing the lost.
Our first series will be taught by Pastor Dan Turner, who will be offering two workshops relating to ministry to the people of God (discipleship) and our mission to the world (evangelism). Because these terms are often loaded with assumptions, we will together seek biblical definitions to unify the direction and desires of our church in these areas. In dependence upon God, we pray this will equip and motivate us to a wholehearted readiness to care for people in both word and deed.
We are offering two Saturday sessions of each class with the goal of everyone being able to attend - so if you can’t do the date your city group is assigned to, we’d love for you to join the other one!

Consider pairing up with a family in a different City Group to watch each other’s kids in your home while parents attend the workshop. We can assist with pairings if you let us know during registration you prefer that option.
If you register to use childcare during the class at the church, we will be asking you to then also help serve in childcare in a slot during one of the alternate dates.
If anyone else would like to volunteer to help out for a 2-3 hr slot, we would love that so please let us know!!
