Getting Ready for Summer!

It is hard to believe that another school year is coming to an end, but that always means it's TIME FOR SUMMER! And we hope that you are planning to join us this summer in all of our activities.


Our AMAZING INTERNS are:

Jonathan Brenek!! Hailey Jara!! Nick Gusler!! Abby Van Leer!!

They have already been hard at work planning some fun things. We have attached our summer calendar here, as well as some other important things to know about the next few months!


We are looking forward to spending time with you all this summer!

Summer Sunday Morning Schedule

Please note the change in our Sunday morning schedule over the summer. We know families will be busy planning their own summer vacations and activities and that summer often ushers in a season of lower attendance. So we are hoping that combining our two worship services will help make our worship services feel intimate and energetic.

Sunday Message Series - The Real God

Join us for the next few weeks on Sunday mornings during worship (10:45am hour for ALL YOUTH) as we dive into WHO GOD REALLY IS and how HE wants us to REALLY SEE HIM! We will find that we often try to put God into a box of what we know and understand Him to be, but we will find that God is much bigger than we give Him credit!
