Our mission as a church is to love and lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. The Spiritual Growth Journey courses are designed to assist you in your spiritual growth and development. The courses are grouped by Keystone’s four pursuits, known as The 4: Grow, Connect, Reach, Share.
The courses do not need to be taken in any particular order and we would encourage you to take courses from each of the different areas as you work your way through them all. The courses will be offered at different times and dates throughout the year.

Here are the courses that are being offered this Fall:
Starting Point (Grow)
Sundays at 10:30am beginning October 7
Every journey has a starting point, even a faith journey. Starting Point is an eight-session small group conversation about faith. It is for people who are brand-new to Christianity, who are coming back to church, or who just have questions or doubts about faith, God, and spirituality. Starting Point is a safe place to explore Christianity and where your opinions and beliefs are valued and no question is off limits.
Beliefs 101 (Grow)
Sundays at 9:00am beginning October 21
What is God like? Is the Bible really inspired? Who is Jesus? How should we live? These are fundamental questions that have a vast impact on our lives and how we look at the world. In this four-session study we’ll look at our core Christian beliefs and values and how they impact our lives.
How do we grow in our relationship with God? One way is by practicing the classic disciplines of the Christian life: worship, prayer, service, fasting, and more. The aim of this seven-session study is to help us understand and enjoy (not dread!) the various disciplines, and to grow closer to God by integrating the disciplines more fully into our lives.
Christian (It’s Not What You Think) (Reach)
Sundays at 11:45am beginning October 7
What does it mean to be a Christian? Ask 100 people that question and you are likely to get 100 different answers, but Jesus called his followers to be “disciples.” Being a disciple isn’t as simple as going to church services or believing a set of facts, it is an active lifestyle. It requires effort and sacrifice. It is about loving others as Jesus did. In this eight-session study, you’ll be challenged to rethink what it means to be a Christian.
Everyday Questions (Reach)
Our friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family all have lots of questions. This nine-session study will equip you to respond to difficult questions about life and faith. Everyday Questions will prepare you to listen more carefully, ask the right questions, start meaningful conversations, build strong friendships, and effectively share the gospel with those around you. You’ll be ready to have helpful conversations about life’s toughest questions.
Saturday, October 27, 10:00am – Noon (no childcare available)
Interested in becoming a member of Keystone? This is the place to start. This one-session gathering that lasts for about two hours is an opportunity to learn more about who we are and why do we what do. You’ll learn about Keystone’s beliefs, mission, vision, and values, and what it means to be a member. There are also plenty of opportunities to ask questions so you’ll be better able to make an informed decision about membership.
Grace Walk (Share)
Grace Walk is an eight-week study about God’s grace and understanding our identity in Christ—who we really are—and how we can walk in grace. You will discover the freedom of your new life in Christ and how you can let him live his life through you each day. As you experience your true identity in Christ, you’ll come to know “Amazing Grace” as not just a song but as your true way of life.
Divine Design (Share)
Saturdays, November 3 & 10, 9:30am – Noon (no childcare available)
Learn how to make serving both fruitful and fulfilling. Divine Design will help you discover your spiritual gifts, personal style, and God-given passion for serving in the body of Christ. During two three-hour sessions you will discover the spiritual gifts God has given you and the best places for you to serve and put your gifts to work in God’s kingdom so that serving is a joy.
