Become & Multiply
"Summer can be an easy time to fall between the cracks. But... it could turn out to be an incredible time of friendship and growth in the Lord! If you're a recent High School graduate or you're currently in the college age/stage, we want you to connect with us this summer! Summer CC (College Connection) is kicking off this coming Sunday night, June 6, at 6pm. We'll meet at the Teeter's home for Bible study, a time of worship, and delicious desserts. (If you need directions, please email the church office). Also, on Wednesdays throughout the summer, the Summer CC group will host fun events for current and rising college students. Email Josh with any questions!"

The Missionary Training Center (or M.T.A.) is an immersive program for children to learn what it's like to prepare for the mission field. They'll learn Bible study skills, how to share the Gospel, be immersed in the country/culture they may move to, and learn basic life skills that are helpful on the mission field. We still have leadership roles available!

Faith and Fire: Elijah by Priscilla Shirer
Study for women beginning Thursday, June 10 (in-person and Zoom)

Elijah emerged as the voice of unapologetic truth during a time of national crisis and moral decline. His ministry was marked by tenacious faith and holy fire – the same kind you will need in order to remain steadfast in current culture. Join us as we take a fresh look at Elijah and the difficult choices of obedience that kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven’s fire to fall.
Slugs & Bugs
Friday, June 11 | Show: 6pm

Randall Goodgame leads Slugs & Bugs LIVE with live music, background musical tracks, and brightly colored animated videos. The concert is peppered with fun, interactive moments for the whole family. Dinner is sold out, but the show is still available! Show will start at 6pm. It's free! Tickets are required to attend.
Spiritual Formation Workshop
Sunday, July 13 | 3-5pm

Join us for an interactive workshop on how to identify heresy taught by Pastor Scott Andrews. False teaching was not just an ancient threat to the church; it is a perpetual threat to the true, life-saving message of the gospel. Come learn how to discern the difference between the life-giving message of Christ and heresy.
