Our Mission is to reach the next person for Jesus.  Pray for the one person or one family you would like to get connected to God. 

Feb. 25: FIELD GUIDE TO THE BIBLE Week 8:  CALEB: The wilderness is more than just a backdrop – it’s a key part of our journey. For the Israelites, the wilderness was a barren landscape. For us, it may be a health scare, relationship challenge, or financial setback. Yet, one thing is true for all of us – there is no Promised Land without the wilderness. Fortunately, God is with us and He wants to teach us a few lessons along the way.

Join us in-Person at 9:00am (acapella) or at 11:15am (instrumental) or Livestream at or
