Next Steps

Live the abundant life God created you for

Too often people settle for a life that has happened to them, instead of a life that God has for them. Jesus wants us to live in and from a relationship with Him at the center. He tells us that we are to build on His words so that when we are tested by the storms of life, we remain standing. A life that is fulfilling, abundant and meaningful starts with Jesus taking control over every area of our life. Without Him at the center, we spin our wheels trying to make things work. From our heart, to our mind, to our actions, to the way we treat people, and to the way we handle our finances, God wants us to live in a way that honors and pleases Him.

John 10:10 - "I came that you would have abundant life..."

Child Dedications

We're so excited to host Child Dedications on Sunday, April 16th during the 10am service.

Child dedications are an opportunity for parents to say "yes" to raising their children in the ways of the Lord. As a church, we want to come alongside you and lift your arms as parents, encourage you, and pray for you.

Any age child can be dedicated. Scripture instructs parents to dedicate their children to the Lord and commit to raising them according to His word. If you're ready to take the next step, please register your child(ren) by clicking the button.
