Deciding to follow Jesus is a big step and one we believe is best celebrated in community. We would love to hear about your decision and celebrate with you by sending you a small gift!

Current Series:

Words to a scattered church

James is a fascinating book of the Bible written by a fascinating individual. Not to be mistaken with the two James who were of the “twelve.” This James was the half-brother of Jesus and also the leader of the mother church in Jerusalem. Because of famine, poverty, and persecution, the people of the Jerusalem church begin to scatter around the known world. So James begins to pen out some wisdom into this beautiful, short, and very powerful book. What is perhaps the most practical book of the Bible, it’s also one of the most impactful. Join us on Sundays  as we dive into the amazing book of James.

My Story

Stories are important for two reasons. First, they put into word what we’ve experienced to form gratitude in our hearts. They help us both appreciate and articulate the goodness of God. Second, the become the vehicle to reveal to others God’s faithfulness in the past. Stories remind us that God has been working in the past and He continues to work today.
