OUR MINISTRIES

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FAITH COMMUNITY

GROW

As we grow in that relationship, we draw deeper into Jesus’ embrace.  Come grow in your relationship with Jesus through study and fellowship by attending a small group or ministry activity.  We not only learn about Jesus but are transformed as the words and the stories are incorporated into our lives.


And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10
