CURRENT SERMON SERIES
There are things in our life that never seem to go the way we believe they should. Many times they often go completely wrong. In this new series, we take a look at how to focus our life on Jesus and gain a new perspective and wisdom to live according to His word.
MISSION SUNDAY 2019
February 24th, we are looking forward to a great day of worship as we highlight the mission of God working through our church family. Dr. Mark Dance will be teaching and preaching. Also, join us for a time of evangelism training in a special evening service at 5:30pm.
This is an opportunity to develop thinking and skill sets to better help understand our mission as a church, better engage the Bible, and more effectively interact with people we lead. It is for everyone who wants to develop their leadership skills for life and church ministry.
Our Life Groups are the ongoing small group Bible study system for our church. There are groups available for people in all seasons of life. Some groups meet on Sunday morning and others meet during various times of the week. Check out the listing of Life Groups to find the one that is right for you.
