What’s Happening This Week


Are there things you’re afraid of? Have you ever took a chance and it didn’t work out? If you answered yes, this week’s message will be for you. Nate will be teaching about the important lesson Jesus taught to his followers who were afraid, distracted, and totally blew it. And those same followers were the ones who changed the world. He can do the same for you. 

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towerd Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord save me!” – Matthew 14:29-30  (NIV)


Thursday @ 6:30 pm (dinner at 5:45 pm, see below for details)
Sunday @ 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00 am.

Pulse Jr. (5th – 8th grade) meets Sunday mornings at 11 am.

Pulse Sr. (high school) is on break for summer. Next session will begin in September
