The Essentials of Experiencing God
 It's not too late to join Pastor Glen for “The Essentials of Experiencing God” every Wednesday in February at 5:30 PM in Heritage Hall! This study is based on the best-selling book and covers seven Spiritual realities that teach us how to develop a true relationship with the Creator.
FirstKIDS Date Night
On Sunday, March 3rd from 5:30-8:30 PM our FirstKIDS parents are invited to drop their child(ren) off at the church and pick up a date night kit.
