What’s Happening This Week

Fear Factor – Where are You Putting Your Focus?

How many different ways do you go in a day? Morning routines, dropping kids at school/daycare, work/housework, after-school activities/meetings, what are we having for dinner? It’s easy to be distracted by everyday life and lose focus on what it’s all about. It’s easy to be afraid of the future because your focus is so scattered. God wants you to focus 100% on Him, then see what happens. Check out service this Thursday night or Sunday morning to see Nate teach about focusing your attention on God, and letting Him take care of the rest.

…but my fellow Israelites who went up with me made the hearts of the people melt with fear. I, however, followed the Lord my God wholeheartedly. – Joshua 14:8 (NIV).


Thursday: 6:30 pm
Sunday: 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00 am


Stay and Play

Incredible worship and a message about dealing with the big life events, then hang outside, play some bags, cook s’mores by the fire. That’s just a sampling of what will be happening on Thursday nights all summer long.

The entire month of June will feature bags & s’mores by the fire right after church on Thursday night. It’s a great time to invite that friend or coworker to church – come for a relaxed service and stay after for some fun! July will feature burgers, hot dogs, and kickball. In August we will have ice cream and wiffleball. We look forward to seeing you there!


Lifegroups are a place to have fun with friends.Strengthen Your Relationship With Jesus 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. The Bible is a living, breathing way for God to communicate with you, right where you are, regardless of whether you have been walking with Him your whole life or the journey has just begun.
