Winter Sermon Series:  February 2 - March 8

Join a TRUEish six-week discussion group by clicking here!

The world is full of half-truths and partial lies. Even in the Church there are voices advocating for you to live, practice, and believe certain ideas that aren’t always healthy or Christ-like. How do we discern what to listen to and who to trust? We want to give you six tests that will help you filter fact from fiction, and what is true from what is “true-ish.” Eph 4:14

What is a TRUEish Discussion Group?

Discussion groups typically meet weekly in someone's home for the six weeks of the sermon series.  In a discussion group you can expect to meet other people from Petra, read the Bible together, discuss the sermon, pray and worship, and share how to apply what you're learning to everyday life.
