  • What about my kids?

    Our Children and Students are important too! It is our job as parents to disciple our children on a daily basis. We are privileged to have great Dream Teamers who engage with them on Sundays. Now is your chance to see how they are learning on Sundays. You never know you may learn something too!


    Children and Youth lessons and video material for each Sunday are available here on our website and the app under "Connect". You can also find a crisis conversation guides to help you unpack this situation with them under "Resources."

    The Church isn't a building or a place...

    It's the body of Christ in action - you and me and all of us in action. So we may not gather temporarily in our building, but we are still the Church in action! We cannot stop being all that God asks us to be - light in a dark world, people who love their neighbors well, people who look out for orphans and widows and vulnerable populations, people of the Word, people concerned about the lost people in our communities, people of prayer, people who are disciples making more disciples of Christ. So, as I say each week, "You are the best there is..." so don't let this virus stop you from being the Church in action!

    - Pastor Matthew

    "Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it." 1 Corinthians 12:27

    As a church, we are exploring how we can minister during these days in each of our communities. It is crucial that the Church is the Church and is actively responding to the needs of those around us. We are currently in conversations with local community leaders including school officials, medical professionals and other local pastors. As we discover the ways we can best serve, we will be looking for people who want to engage in ministry opportunities. If you are interested in serving, please email us at or
