KidStuf Orange Letters White BackgroundParents, are you looking for an opportunity to connect with your children while learning about God’s “big ideas”? We would love to invite you to attend our next Kidstuf event on October 9. We’ll learn what God has to say about self-control through a 45-minute, fun, digital, multimedia, and interactive experience. Self-control is something we all struggle with at some point in our lives. God’s word has so much to say about keeping that monster at bay. Join us as we tackle it together and have a little fun while we’re at it.

Invite your friends, and sign up here!

Night of Worship September 16

A note from Kevin Bunnell, service programming director:

I’ve had the privilege of spending a lot of my time this past week on preparations for our Night of Worship on September 16. Several times a year, we gather as a church family to celebrate who God is and what He’s doing in our lives as well as in this local church that we call home. We’re gonna do that September 16 at 7:00pm.

I am pretty excited when Nights of Worship are on the horizon. The chance to sing a few extra songs, hear the vision of Access cast by Rich, and pause in the midst of our busy lives to reflect on Christ’s sacrifice through communion is easily excitable to me, but as this fall approached, it seemed different.

Are you part of a Community Group?


Community Groups are where people meet weekly to study the Bible and discuss issues relevant to their specific stage of life. This is the place where we can stop answering, “I’m fine,” to the obligatory, “How are you?” Instead, we can be honest and transparent in a confidential, relaxed, and fun atmosphere.

When you think about joining a Community Group, though, do you break out in a cold sweat? Most individuals experience anxiety when it comes to trying new things. Even extroverts get nervous about making friends and finding people to share life with. We understand that! In order to make it a more enjoyable and successful venture, we are excited to offer GroupLink.

When you arrive at our GroupLink event, a facilitator will help you find people who share your stage of life or geographical location. Dessert and coffee will be served while you have the opportunity to meet new friends.… Read the rest
