At Father’s House, we agree with God when He declared in Genesis 2.18, “It is not good for man to be alone...” We know that within genuine, vulnerable, healthy, and godly community we find God’s presence (Matthew 18:20), added strength (Ecclesiastes 4:12), deep healing (James 5:16), a safe place to expose our true selves (Matthew 17:26), and the ability to display God’s love and light to the world around us (Matthew 5:13-16).
Mosaic Groups are small groups within Father’s House that gather together weekly, within each other’s homes, for the purpose of community (growing in relationship with one another), discipleship (growing as apprentices of Jesus Christ, learning His thoughts, heart and ways), and mission (being salt and light to our community around us).

Description: Scripture instructs men to love their wives and wives to respect their husbands, because love best motivates a woman, and respect powerfully motivates a man. When 7,000 people were asked the question, "When you are in a conflict with your spouse, do you feel unloved or disrespected," 83% of the men said "disrespected," and 72% of the women said, "unloved." This DVD course by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is designed to help you understand and apply the principles of love and respect in marriage. Join us in September for 7 weeks of renovating your marriage!
The Theological Pub is for those wanting to engage in theological conversation. The goal of this group is to discuss topics that can sometimes be controversial and require knowledge of the Word. If you are thirsty for seminary-level discussion and a pint, then this is your group.
