Play The Man For Dads

January 13th, 2018

Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. We are inviting all men (even teens) to join us on Saturday, January 13 at 9:00am as listen to Mark Batterson talk about how we can navigate this “no-man’s-land” and learn how dad's can better play the man for our kids and raise our sons to play the man.

We will have a man breakfast of pancakes and bacon!

CIY Believe

April 7th - April 8th, 2018


Believe is a high energy weekend event for Jr High students only. It is structured specifically for Jr High Students and is packed with powerful worship and teaching from God's Word. As they go through the weekend, students will be discover ways in which God is calling them to be Kingdom workers in their schools, communities, and the world.

Many things can cause a Jr. High student to become lonely. Anxiety, sin, depression, distorted identity, rejection, self-worth, abandonment, even technology plays a role. But God teaches us that relationships are key in life. A relationship with Jesus is where life really comes from - eternal life. And if Jr. high students have a distorted view of how relationships work here on earth, they'll have a mistaken view of how a relationship with Jesus works.

This year's Believe tour will help these students know exactly what it means to have a relationship WITH Jesus.

WITH - it's a common word, but when spoken in the context of a relationship with Jesus it has such a deeper meaning. By focusing on Matthew 28:20 and exploring the idea of a relationship "WITH" Jesus, Believe will help Jr. High Students discover how to worship God through a right and faithful relationship with Him.
