Current Series

FAith & Feelings

Some of us have good days, and some of us have bad. Our emotions are a big part of who we are. God wants us to know that we can experience joy even in the most difficult circumstances of life. In this series, we’ll learn what God says about our emotional well-being and how we can make decisions that lead to healthy feelings. This has been a very impactful series so far. Join us in the journey!

STIL: STRONGER TOGETHER IN LOVE

Starts: Wednesday, March 9 @ 6:30pm- this group will meet every other week.
Location: 120 Main Building

The purpose of the STIL group is to support those that love others who struggle with mental health challenges or the disease of addiction.  We will respect confidentiality, encourage sharing and provide a safe place to share our thoughts and feelings. Come and find community amongst people that understand and can offer biblical and experienced support and wisdom!
We accomplish this purpose by believing Ecclesiastes 4:12
“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.   A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
The Leaders of this group are Kim Earley & Shpresa Kaletsch both have extensive, professional training and experience in mental health & substance abuse counseling and both love the Lord.

:: EVERY DAY MATTERS
Each day is unique and a time to experience and show God's love. We believe that there can never be too much love in a community and our showing it has the potential to change a culture for the good. It happens when we live life together by encouraging one another and helping each other be who God created us to be. You Matter because you are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God, the Creator of the Universe.
Because YOU MATTER to Him, YOU MATTER to us.
Our Campus is called to provide a complete experience for followers of Christ, Monday through Sunday. We love to do life with people! The Lord is in our daily walk and He determines our footsteps. And In all of it, every day, we give God glory!
