This Week At Fruit Cove

Check back here often to find out what’s happening this week, next week, and into the future at Fruit Cove! 

New MidWeek Groups Begin on March 20

Managing Money By The Book (The Bible)
What does God and the Bible say about money? A lot. Over 2300 verses talk about money. More than Hope, Love, and Prayer combined. Because of these reasons, our attitude toward money and materialism keeps us from finding peace and the full blessings of God.

The Real Thing
We will find out what the Bible says about genuine faith and come away with great assurance AND a reliable way to help others avoid self-deception…that only God’s Word can offer.
