Child Dedications

2018-10-26T11:29:46+00:00October 26th, 2018|stories|

Child Dedication, often called a Baby Dedication, is a choice to dedicate your lives, as parents, to sharing and modeling the truth of the Bible and the love of Christ. It’s about making a commitment in front of friends and family to raise your children in an environment that leads their hearts to God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

If you are interested in participating, you can sign up here!

Water Baptism

2018-10-26T11:26:19+00:00October 26th, 2018|stories|

Water baptism and communion are the only two ordinances that Jesus gave the church in which to participate. They help us picture the important foundational teachings of Jesus.

We will be celebrating with those taking the step of water baptism during our
weekend services at both campuses. You can sign up to be baptized using your Connect Card
during service or by visiting us online HERE.

Are You Serious?

2018-08-05T12:30:23+00:00August 5th, 2018|stories|

Have you ever read something in the Bible that caused you to think, “Are you serious?  What is that supposed to mean?”

In all honesty, Jesus made some pretty outrageous statements at times!  He seemed to think differently than most people and even had some ideas that could be called “upside-down” to how many people live.

Join us for our new series beginning August 5.
