Happy Friday Friends!


We kicked off our Wednesday night programming this week and had an amazing turnout! Over 200 people were here on campus enjoying everything from adult Bible study in the sanctuary to preschool dance parties, elementary games, Common Ground and studies for moms & dads! The education building was a high energy, joyful place to be as we begin 2021 learning and building community with one another!

If you didn't make it this week, be sure to make plans to be here next Wednesday at 6:30, it's a terrific opportunity for midweek encouragement and to strengthen relationships in our church family!


Join us on Saturday, January 16 from 10-11:30am in Room 206 for our monthly prayer gathering. You are welcome to come for any length of time and we'll gather in small, distanced groups to prayer for our nation, our church, and God's will to be done throughout the world.

Our 8am traditional style worship service is returning on Sunday, January 24. Providing an additional opportunity for traditional worship allows us to practice better physical distancing in the sanctuary. Childcare will be available for infants-Pre-K and this service will be a live, in person event only. We will not be broadcasting this service and will continue to broadcast our 9:30am and 11am services online.
