We belong together...and we serve together.

Orchestra Players Wanted
Starting Wednesday, September 6
Do you miss playing in your school band or orchestra instrument? We are looking for players to provide beautiful music throughout the year as well as accompany our worship team on Sunday mornings. Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 7:00-8:15 PM during the school year. Contact Todd Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Stage Design
During August and September, we are staging a new set in our Worship Center provided by one of our long-time ministry partners, Christ In Youth. Christ In Youth provides events to thousands of teens and kids all over the U.S. and the world. In order to better prepare for their Fall and Spring student events, they have asked if they could test their stage setup in our Worship Center. We are excited to host them and to see that both ministries can benefit!
