Be part of a history-making mission opportunity! We have the privilege of joining Mill City Baptist Church to help rebuild and reestablish their gospel witness in Oregon after the devastation of fires in 2020. The dates for the trips have changed but the opportunity for great Christian fellowship has not. Even if you can’t physically be part of a team, click below to find out how you can still be involved.
Community Groups and LifeGroups are now back to meeting in-person on Sundays. If you would like more information about getting involved in these groups, please click below.

I am a people-pleaser. There, I said it. For me, it stems from early periods of life where I felt the need to fight for approval. Tragically, even today, I feel the need to. It is ridiculous when I think about it, however. As my wife has lovingly reminded me, not only...
It’s no secret how much I like Christmas music. There’s nothing like listening to Karen Carpenter singing “Home for the Holidays” or Tony Bennett singing “Winter Wonderland”. Most people believe it’s socially acceptable to begin listening after Thanksgiving, although...
