We wanted to create a space where we could update you on news from around the church, information on upcoming events, follow up to a recent sermon.

Often you will find thoughts on a Sunday message or event stories from our life together as a church.

Metro Young Adults: A Night of Hopeful Lament

Night of Hopeful Lament

A Long Dark Night There have been times in my life where I just couldn't see anyway forward.

Funtoberfest 2018

How can I make a difference? I love this question. It's a question that is loaded with ownership.
