Youth Sunday

As we have concluded the 7 Big Questions that allowed us to Explore Who God Is, I would like to personally invite you this Sunday to a very special youth-led Sunday at both 8:30 and 11 a.m.

The youth will be leading worship and I know you will be blessed by their message. They will be speaking on a rather challenging topic: "IDOLS: Where Does Your Identity Come From?" They are so excited to share this topic with you through music, dance, prayer, testimony and sermon.

I know that this message will be a blessing to you, reminding you of God’s faithfulness and challenging you to put Him in the center of all that you do. Please join us as we lift high the name of Jesus and take you on a journey. We can’t wait to share and celebrate with you on this Youth Sunday Worship.
