Pursuit of Happiness – Shine Like Stars
Have you ever noticed that it’s hard not to be positive around positive people? On the flip side, when you are around negativity, your views tend to be more negative. People in general reflect what they see. How difficult would it be to make up your mind to remain positive in every circumstance? Reminding yourself that God is always working through you, and letting others see His light. Check out service this Thursday night or Sunday morning as Jared Baker will teach about letting the light of the Lord shine through you for everyone else to see.
Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.
– Philippians 2:15 (NIV)
Thursday: 6:30 pm
Sunday: 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00 am

Strengthen Your Relationship With Jesus
Connect In A Lifegroup
Lifegroups are a place to take a break from the busy demands of everyday life with a group of friends, a place to share, laugh, and serve together. Lifegroups are a place to grow in your relationship with Jesus, a place to learn the stories that Jesus taught and how they apply to your life today.

Pulse for Students
Pulse Jr. (5th – 8th grade) meets Sunday mornings at 11 am and Sunday evenings from 6-8 pm. Our main focus is God, but we also have lots of fun! Part of group night is small group time, where students dive into scripture and talk about topics such as discovering who God designed them to be, and issues they’re facing every day, such as lying or gossip. There is music, food, games and lots of fun!
Pulse Sr. (high school) gets together Sunday nights, at the church, 6-8 pm! We worship together, eat, play games, and have a great discussion on tough issues. It’s a safe place to hang out with other high school students and great leaders. We encourage our students to bring friends to join in the fun!
