"On this rock I will build my church..." Matthew 16:18

Jesus promises to build the church. He invites us to confess the truth of who He is. Our work is to live as accurate witnesses. His work is to bring His kingdom. Our Fall teaching series, "We Believe" explores the core confession of Christian faith known as the Apostles Creed. Join us as we explore the richness and beauty of orthodoxy expressed in this ancient summary of biblical faith.

Faithful Friends Mentoring 

Later this month you will hear from Curtis Holm about Faithful Friends.  Faithful Friends is a faith-based mentoring program that provides children with support through relationships that encourage them to thrive in their hopes and dreams.

We are looking for individuals, couples and families who are interested in volunteering as mentors for a child, ages 6-9. Volunteers meet with their mentee 3-4 times each month for at least one year, with the opportunity to continue. 

If you are interested or would like to learn more, check out their website or connect with Curtis.
