Let's connect during the week.
Christian faith formation is a lifelong journey. That's why we are doing our best to make it easy for you to connect with God and others in authentic relationships throughout the week. No one person is an island and the faith journey is not meant to be done alone, so are working together to make it easier for you to join a faith community in this COVID season and beyond.
This summer kids 4 years old through the 5th grade are invited to discover God’s greatest treasure is not diamonds or gold but them! Camp Treasured is a week of faith discoveries, memorable music, and epic adventures that help kids encounter Jesus in a special way!
Kids will experience:

Faith Formation of Adults
LIFE Circles is a small group ministry, that connects 3-8 people to each other and to God's word. We are starting several sermon-based groups in addition to our current affinity-based groups. Our Life Circles meet in seasons (periods of 6 weeks) though some may meet continuously.
LIFE Circles provide a context for people to connect with one another and to build relationships. They provide an opportunity to contemplate faith, experience community, and engage in the Great Commission of making disciples for Jesus Christ. Circles connect weekly, or biweekly, and engage at different levels or intensities, the spiritual disciplines of worship, Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and service. Our LIFE Circles serve the mission of the church, mobilize people for ministry, and are a component of our faith transformation process.
