From Darla Holmes, Director of Children’s Ministries and Grow Groups
As we begin a new year, we are praying for you to continue your growth in your faith and knowledge of our Lord Jesus. Romans 10:14 states “But how can people call for help if they don’t know who to trust? And how can they know who to trust if they haven’t heard of the One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells them?” We invite you to join us as we learn together how to be that one that shares the true meaning of our Lord. This year we have an opportunity to grow, learn, seek, and go with others. Let’s start the journey together!
Sunday mornings our Campus Groups begin at 9:15. Our Youth and Children’s programs start at 9:00 so you can bring the whole family.
