Finding Joy in Christ

Join us this week!
9:00 and 10:30 a.m.

Upcoming Events

Women’s Psalms Study

The Psalms include some of the most well-loved and well-worn passages in our Bibles. More than just devotional reading, they instruct us through every season of life how to speak to – and speak of – God. Join us as we explore how the songs of Scripture give us language both to approach and to adore the Lord. This will be an 11-week study of Psalms: the Prayers of God’s People, taught by Jen Wilken.

Sunday Worship

Join us each Sunday for worship through singing, teaching from the Bible, and times of fellowship together.  

MUMS

MUMs (Moms Uplifting Moms) exists to support, encourage, and inspire moms to find joy in motherhood as they pursue Christ alongside other women. We meet the first and third Tuesday of the month from September 15 through May 4. Childcare is provided.
