spotlightIt’s important for us to help our kids and families discovery more about honor—letting someone know you see how valuable they really are.

Our Memory Verse for November comes from Romans 12. Throughout the chapter, Paul casts a vision for the church and how they can live as people transformed by God’s Holy Spirit.

We are an ORANGE church. What does that mean? It means our model takes the heart of the family (red), partners it with the light of the church (yellow), to create a powerful ORANGE team! Our goal is to provide quality instruction to your children regarding the bible and its truths while helping to empower parents to share their faith in the home!

Invite a friend!
Invite your neighbors!
Bring your grandchild!

It’s going to be AMAZING!

Sunday worship is about good works. If you want to find out what Jesus had to say about life and love, visit with us on Sunday. We teach from the Bible, learn about God and open our doors to everyone. Our family welcomes you!

Who knows what God’s Spirit might do in our midst?
