We believe that each of us were made to be in relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It is also our belief that God calls all Christians to grow in their faith. It is our hope that every adult will choose to grow by becoming part of our small group ministry and by serving in missions in some way. Small group ministry helps develop lasting relationships and foster faith growth. Service through missions fosters our call as Christians to love our neighbor. We believe every adult should be engaged in these ministries because they are quintessential to our faith.
