OUTREACH AND FELLOWSHIP

We have plenty of engaging events and gatherings designed to build the faith and community of our church family. We desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus; therefore, we have many outreach events throughout the year.

Big Church, Small Community.

Living in community affords us the opportunity to more wholly experience God through close relationships as we serve, have fun, pray, encourage, help one another, study, and live out God’s word together.
