Current Message Series
The books of 1 John, 2 John, and 3 John in the Bible were written to define love and what it has to do with everything in our lives. Join us in person or online this weekend as we conclude this message series on love. Our worship services are Saturday at 5pm and Sunday at 9am and 11am. And you can always catch us on demand throughout the week.

Leviticus Reading Plan
STARTS WEEK OF MAY 10, 2021 (NEW SERIES BEGINS MAY 15/16)
Leviticus - yep that’s the Old Testament book you usually skip over when reading the Bible. It is full of smoke and fire and blood — very messy indeed. However, there’s a life code described between the written lines, a life code of order and worship. Learn how to read, study, and experience Leviticus, a ancient book for contemporary spirituality.
Baby Dedication Celebration
SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 2021 AT 10AM
We love babies! We ESPECIALLY love when parents dedicate themselves to raising their child to know and love Jesus. That's why we have Baby Dedication Celebrations throughout the year. Our next event is Saturday, June 5 with a Parent Orientation on Sunday, May 23. The deadline to register is May 17.
Women's Bible Study
BEGINS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 2021 FROM 9:30-11:30AM (4 WEEKS)
If you’ve ever found yourself overwhelmed by a mountain of diapers, the stresses of coping with a rebellious teen, or the loneliness of an empty nest, remember that each of these is only a season we are passing through. No matter your season of life, now is your time to thrive. Join us for "Seasons of a Women's Life" Bible study with sisters Chrystal Hurst and Priscilla Shirer.
Youth Mission Trip
JUNE 22-24, 2021
Sixth-12th grade students are invited to participate in our mission trip to . . . (drum roll, please) the Decatur area! During this three-day mission trip, teens will serve different agencies in our community each morning, have fun in the afternoons, and wrap up each day with a worship service.

Worshipping In Person or Online
You're spiritual and physical well-being are our top priority.

We have implemented social distancing, including the use of masks, antibacterial stations, individually packaged communion, limited capacities, and more.
