As you prepare for this gathering, pray that the Lord would open our eyes to his glory, his will, and his presence with us. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
To help you prepare for our weekly gatherings, we've put together this weekly playlist containing the songs we'll be singing together this coming Sunday. Take a listen to prime your heart and mind to worship.
We've also put together a brand new playlist for autumn with songs to sing as we settle back into rhythms we may have set aside for the summer. We pray these songs are a blessing to you!
We have lots going on this summer and we'd love to have you join us! Click here to view our calendar and to register for upcoming events!
COMMUNITY GROUPS LAUNCH THIS WEEK
We are thrilled to be entering into our fall community group campaign! Community groups are the primary way that we live out our call as Christians to live life together. Groups meet once a week for 10 weeks to share, process the week’s sermon, and enjoy one another. If you've been waiting to join a group until “the right time” — it is now!

INTRODUCTION TO THE SACRAMENTS CLASS | SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13
Baptism and The Lord’s Supper are essential elements of the life of a disciple, but these disciplines are often steeped in mystery. It’s our hope that this class will lift the veil from the sacraments and their beauty.
This class is available to all over the age of 12. PARENTS, we strongly encourage you to register your 12+ child(ren) to give them an understanding of why we observe both baptism and communion. This class is mandatory to anyone who wishes to be baptized before the age of 18.
If you’re interested in learning more about the sacraments, please join us on Sunday, October 13 from 5:00 - 6:30pm. We will share a meal together, so please RSVP HERE by Sunday, October 6.
WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER
Each Wednesday morning, we'll be gathering at 6:00am for a brief (30 minute) time of prayer. Come with your coffee and join us as we enjoy the presence of God together.
