Upcoming Events

Coming up in future Saturday Services!

Starting on Saturday, November 2nd at 5PM,  we begin a new video series. "All In" with Mark Batterson.  This is a four session video based Bible study with an invitation to go all out for Jesus Chirst.  Jesus didn't die just to keep us safe.  His died to make us dangerous. So our lives should be anything but boring, safe, or routine.  Following Jesus isn't just the adventure of a lifetime. It lasts for all eternity!

Mark your calendars now!
