2017 Outreach Center Block Party

Saturday Evening Worship Changing Location! The Church Council voted on the Worship Committee’s recommendation to move the 6:00 p.m. Saturday Evening Worship Service to our Outreach Center in the Wesley Room starting on Saturday, July 7th. This decision was preceded by a worship survey         and numerous conversations, and will remain in effect through December, then will be re-evaluated. July’s worship theme is “Who We Are: Called.”

Summer Splash for Youth is every Wednesday from 7:00 – 8:15 p.m. This is not your regular youth group. Plan on many outdoor activities and lots of excursions away from the Outreach Center. All activities will begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 8:15 at the Outreach Center unless otherwise noted.
Joe Krepel will be serving as Associate Pastor of Outreach Ministries, beginning on July 1st, and beginning to preach at the Ignite Service on July 15th. CLICK HERE to read more....
