I look forward to that first Sunday back! I also miss being in the office throughout the week, so today, I want to brag on ...
A COVID-19 Update From Our Leadership
May 3rd, 2020
Dear Church Family - The topic of churches reopening is high on the list of conversation subjects over the last few days, especially among church leaders. The potential timeline and critical details of a large church, such as ours, reopening its doors is complex.

Your Giving Matters

A COVID-19 Update From Pastor Scot
March 18th, 2020
Dear Church,There are times that define people. I believe we are in one of those times. But make no mistake, we are in it together. What is more, infinitely more, we are in it with Jesus. He has never forsaken us and He never will. He is sovereign. He is powerful. Good. Strong. Present. He is not panicked, nor is He worried. I believe Jesus is both sad and active. He is saddened by the corruption ...
