Upcoming Events

Summer Events are Still Happening! 

Middle School Camp! High School Camp! While things this upcoming season will look different, the Family Ministries Team goal is that all families are invited and equipped to grow this season. It is our desire to partner through the summer with families in unique and creative ways. We believe parents have a special voice in the spiritual growth of their kids and we want to continue to give you tools and experiences to grow your family's faith.

You can expect to hear ministry updates from us regarding events on a bi-weekly basis. Whether your family is able to be physically present or is maintaining social distancing, we are creating pathways for all to be a part of ministry. This also pertains to any financial barriers.

If you have not already, please read this update letter from Pastor Chris Lyons. We look forward to connecting during this unique season!

MOre Opportunities for Students


For all school-aged kids interested in learning more about baptism, contact Pastor Chris Lyons. We will meet to share details around the meaning of baptism as a step of faith - and why it is so amazing to have the whole church cheer us on! It's a great privilege to love, inspire, and equip our families to follow Jesus together!

Prayer Partners

This program aims to connect adults with youth by mutually praying for one another throughout the seasons of life. To best love, inspire, and equip our children, students, and families, this ministry helps deep intergenerational connections happen so that belonging becomes contagious in our midst.
