New to Following Jesus?

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!

Let us know!

Outdoor Water Baptism

Water Baptism is a beautiful moment that outwardly demonstrates a person’s inward desire to follow after Jesus. And it is one of the best next steps for a believer who has never been baptized. 

Every Summer we do an outdoor baptism along with a picnic for the whole church to attend. Bring your family, some lunch, and join us after service on August 28!

I Would Like to be Baptized!

Child Dedication

Child dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publicly your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, so your child will develop a desire to love God and love others.

We will be having our next Child dedication on September 11.

Next Gen

We are looking to expand and grow our teams with people of all ages and walks of life. Even if you doubt whether serving on the Next Gen team is a fit, we would encourage you to fill out a serve card and Pastor Carissa will reach out and begin the conversation of helping you find your fit on the Next Gen Team. You taking one simple step could make your name a name to remember on the hearts of our next generation – a generation that we are raising up to be firm in their foundation in Christ and their unique callings. A generation that we care for and believe in. A generation worth changing our culture for.

Current Series:

Questions Jesus Asked

Jesus was always asking questions. In fact, the very first time Jesus speaks in the scripture is a question. Questions do not allow you the luxury of staying at the surface. Questions make us go deeper. Join us for our summer series called “Questions Jesus Asked“ as we navigate the gospels and watch Jesus take people past the surface of their lives and go deeper through his questions.
