Youth Girls' Fall Retreat, October 7-9

The youth girls (Oct 7-9) will be going to Cherry Grove beach to hang out and explore the beach. This year's bible study topic for the trips is in the works, but it's going to be really cool. The spots are limited, and they are filling up fast! If your child would like to go, please sign them up soon! Total cost per student is $100.

New Wednesday Night Children's Study

Join us on Wednesday nights where kids will have the opportunity to learn about following Jesus through a fun new study called "Eternity and Beyond."  This will take place at the same time as the Equip U studies, which will be held in the Worship Center for youth and adults.  

Submit prayer requests online

Do you have a prayer request that you would like to share with your church family? In addition to filling out the Friendship Register at church on Sunday morning, you can also submit them during this week by clicking here or navigating to the "Contact" menu item above and clicking on "Submit a Prayer Request."

Join a small group

Check out the list of small groups here and find one that fits your schedule.  Small groups are the perfect way to get to know each other, study God's Word together, and support each other in the day to day trials and joys of life.  Small groups are a great way to “do life” among others. They are designed for various ages and stages of life, and available at different times throughout the week. Beginning Sunday, Sept. 11, small groups will launch new studies. Be on the lookout next week for details about Fall group studies at the Connection Central Wall.
