Middle School and High School Students:  Do you miss your friends at church?  We miss you.  Let’s fix that!  Beginning Sunday October 4, you are invited to join a virtual small group gathering and social hour at 10am.  This is a Small Group experience; not a Sunday School lesson.  It is a time for you to reconnect with your church friends, discuss current topics with one another, and rediscover why your church connection is so important to you in the first place.  We plan to start this virtually and decide how and when to move to in-person gatherings over time.  To join CLICK HERE at 10:00am each Sunday .


Keep in touch & share

Follow us & stay tuned
