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!

Jesus Loves Kalamazoo

Join us on July 11 and July 14 from 5:00-8:30 pm as we serve our community through Partnering with Jesus Loves Kalamazoo during Catalyst Week.

What is Jesus’ love Kalamazoo? JLK, for short, is a citywide movement of churches that come together to share Christ’s love throughout the Kalamazoo area. During Catalyst Week, churches from all over the Kalamazoo area join together and serve our community.

We invite you to join us on July 11th at Milham Meadows and July 14th at Salvation Army as we serve at two JLK grill sites. Here we will feed, pray with, and minister to those who attend. More info will be provided once you register.

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.
