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.
