Invite your friends and family to our exciting Easter event, Hop2It! Kids won’t want to miss our unique glow-in-the-dark egg hunt, prize room, bounce house, food, crafts, face painting, story time and card tricks by “Don’t Blink”! We’ll have a corn hole tournament for older kids and adults. Bounce on over to this FREE event 9 a.m. to Noon March 19.
You don’t want to miss this Sunday as we celebrate with those in our church body who are making a public proclamation of their faith through baptism! This will be an awesome time to hear stories of how God is working in the lives of those in our church! We will have baptisms during both services at 9:30 and 11 a.m.
Families of junior high and high school students are invited to come together to pray, celebrate and enjoy an evening honoring and blessing one another at Family ReKindle 7 to 8:30 p.m. March 21. It can be a challenge as families to find time in our jam-packed schedules to make meaningful connections. We hope Thrive and Crossfire families will find that space during Family ReKindle as we search the scriptures on why God made families.
Our Good Friday service is 7 p.m. March 25. Mark your calendar for this Tenebrae service as we reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice to give us life. Childcare will be provided for birth to kindergarten.
Life has a way of getting out of control, leaving you exhausted. Whether it’s stress at work, family conflict, a full schedule, or trying to please everyone, you might be feeling defeated in life. It doesn’t have to be that way. Three words spoken 2,000 years ago changed everything: Jesus is ALIVE! Those words rocked history, and they have just as much power in our lives today. Join us at 9:30 or 11 a.m. Easter Sunday as we unpack important Biblical truths about a timeless message that gives us a fresh start at life.

Imagine how different your outlook on life would be if you had absolute confidence God was with you.
