Get School Off to a Good Start

    Understanding how God creates us uniquely and on purpose makes an awesome difference in how we live life. We find that interacting in friendships, at school and in family relationships takes on a whole new meaning. As fall begins, there’s opportunity to set new rhythms and patterns. It’s a great time to explore these ideas as you engage in church community together as a family.

    Children & Family Ministries is focusing on inviting children and their families into these truths as they learn to live out their identity in Jesus. Learn more
