-In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us.- 
                                                        (Colossians 3:11)

We come from different backgrounds and have different life experiences, yet one thing has captivated our hearts: The ravishing love of Jesus Christ for us! Our church loves to connect with one another, and work together to serve our neighbors and represent Jesus to a world thirsty for examples of real love.

Frequently we hear it said that church family seems even closer than the people we’re physically related to. This isn’t surprising, since the blood of Jesus unites us. “But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)

Join our church family in some of the events described here as we seek to love one another and represent Christ to a fallen world.

Home Groups: these groups meet on weeknights and are one of the primary ways we connect with one another. Groups are starting up again in September. To learn more, attend our Home Group Connect Meeting on August 4 at 10:45 AM in room C8.

How might those boundaries change over time?” “How can I keep from burning out when I feel like I’m on the roller coaster whenever I’m with someone challenging?”
