Bi-Monthly Updates · May 7, 2024

Brothers & Sisters, 

For the past two Sundays, we have been celebrating God's presence and growth in our church for the first 11 months of our 24-month BEYOND initiative. By “God’s power at work within us” (Eph. 3:20b), we are off to an amazing start! 

And I believe the second year of BEYOND can be even more impactful as we baptize new Christians, welcome new members, break ground on Phase 1a, and serve more people in need than ever before - locally and beyond!

As we approach a very special Celebration Sunday (Outdoor Worship at 9:30a), May 19, we are asking for your participation in "BEYOND refresh".

Please check out the video below for special instructions!

Between now and then, please join us this coming Sunday, May 12 (Mother's Day) at 8:15a, 9:30a & 10:45a as we look to Matthew 9, Jesus' ministry outside the walls of church!

With hope,

Pastor Nathan

Light refreshments following the service!

Set-Up, Food & Drink Items, Clean-Up... there are a variety of ways YOU can help make Celebration Sunday, May 19th, a very special day for our Church! Sign Up HERE!
