For the kids: Dismissed after the morning offering

  • There is a Children's Church service in the basement for kids 3 years old through 2nd grade.  This service is complete with worship, teaching, and an offering that the kids make the decisions on where to use it!
  • We have a Nursery in the basement for kids birth up to age 3.
  • Treasure Seekers sheets (located in the cry room) are for all ages who wish to stay for the sermon.  Kids will just grab a sheet, follow along and fill it in.  These can be turned in, after the service, to Lance for a TS coin.  Collect your coins to be able to buy some great stuff!

August Sermon Series: STORM PROOF

Life is a seemingly unending series of crises, and our lives take the brunt and the burden of each struggle and burden.  How do we prepare ourselves for the storms of life, and how do we weather what we are already going through?  In the series, STORM PROOF, we will look at God's answers for these questions and so many more. Storms can cause us to ask, "Why me, Lord?" or they can cause us to ask, "What do you want to do in me through this storm?" Storm proofing our life will give us the ability to change the way we look at the challenges we face on a consistent basis.


Stay tuned for more info.
