The Shores Bible Institute integrates the Christian faith into everyday life by equipping followers of Jesus to think theologically, develop a biblical worldview, and put truth into practice.

The Spring session for the Shores Bible Institute happens in April and May of 2018. Starting April 18, classes happen on Wednesday night from 6:30pm to 7:45pm. Simultaneously, the Shores Bible Institute for Kids will happen so the whole family can participate.

Future Family

Family. We all have one. While some of us loved our "growin' up" years, others of us couldn't wait to move out and start fresh. Either way, we want our Future Family to be a step up from our families of origin. Most of us want something better for our children. When it comes to family, what does a preferred future look like? What exactly are we aiming for? Whether you're starting a new family, leaving an old one, or wondering if it's worth the effot at all-this message series will provide you with direction and hope!
