Join us for a beach day on Saturday, June 8, from 9am -2pm as we partner with Voice of the Refugees to bless families who have come to the US from the Middle East.

There may be no more appropriate way to begin a new year and take the next step in your spiritual journey than baptism! The imagery and meaning of baptism is all about the end of the old, the beginning of the new -- the death and burial of our old life with Christ in the after, the resurrection of a God-given new life coming out of the water. How great is that?! And if you haven't been baptized as a follower of Jesus, this is a perfect next step in growing your faith!
We've got baptisms scheduled for Sunday, June 9. Sign up today! We'd love for you to take this next step in your journey!
Be sure to join us during the week of July 15-19 (9am-noon) for our 2019 “Everest” VBS, where kids 3 years old through 6th grade will overcome obstacles and conquer challenges with God’s mighty power during a fun-packed week of music, games, crafts, snacks, and Bible stories. Sign-up here!
