Ways to connect this week...
ZOOM Sunday Service!
Church isn't just about information, it's also about connection!
We'll be gathering as a church on Zoom for a live service at 10 AM (lobby opens at 9:45 AM) every Sunday in an effort to connect and worship together. There'll be a pre-service lobby, breakout small group discussions, music, prayer, preaching and so much more! Click here to see how you can join the service.
ZOOM Online Discussion & Connection Time!
Sunday's @ 8 pm
Just because we're social distancing doesn't mean we need to be distant!  Every Sunday night at 8pm while the COVID19 crisis lasts we're going to host an online discussion & connection time on ZOOM! We'll chat about the sermon, give updates on our lives and just connect.
Click here to see how you can join in on the conversation.

Every Thursday night at 8pm while the Covid19 crisis lasts, we're going to host an online prayer time on ZOOM!
