Our mission leads us to be and to share the good news of Jesus Christ!

Behind the Scenes from the Staff

A couple weeks ago in our Wednesday night Life group, we watched this speaker share on the power of vulnerability. This is not something we really want to feel. To put ourselves out there wholeheartedly, (our true, raw, unpolished, vulnerable selves), among those we come across in life, even with our loved ones, it is…

If you attended 10:05 Worship this week (or have seen the post on our Facebook page) you were as blessed by our precious Heavenly Melodies group as the pastors for whom they sang. “Carry Your Candle” by Kathy Troccoli has long been a favorite of mine. As they sang, my mind went back to Infant…
