Back to Church Sunday

We have all felt lonely. We have all been burned by relationships. Sometimes even within the Church. On Sunday, Sept. 16, we invite you to join us as we seek to reclaim our purpose as a community rescued by Jesus to love those who are hurting, accept the outcast, and embrace the lonely.

The weekend will include the return of our Saturday Night Services on Sep. 15th at 6:00pm, followed by Sunday School at 9:15am the next day, our Morning Worship and Baptism Service at 10:30am, and a potluck immediately following the service.

We want each of you to know that you are welcome and loved. We hope to see you all there!
