Pray Without Ceasing
2 Chronicles 7:13-14
When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
We have two in-person services, meeting at 9am and 11am on Sundays. Both will be livestreamed as well.
We leave the decision of wearing a mask and/or social distancing up to you. Hand sanitizer is available for your convenience, and the facility is clean. If you do not feel well or have possibly been exposed to COVID, please stay home.
Ignite Student Ministry is getting excited for youth camp this summer. If you would like to help send a kid to camp, please designate your gift to "Youth Camp." Also, VBS registration is now open! Please see below for more information.
Women's Ministry has lots of events coming up. See details below.
