It’s official! This Sunday is Promotion Sunday for all in our Preschool, Kidz and Student Ministries, which means your kids will be in a new classroom this week. Our ministry leaders have been preparing and praying for this time of transition. Parents, you should be receiving an email from your kids' ministry areas in the coming days. If you have questions about where your child will be, reach out to us at and we’ll make sure you have that answer.

Are you looking for ways to connect and find community? Now is a natural time to step into a small group discipleship community. You can join one of the new groups forming or step into an existing group. Check out what groups are available here. If you have any questions, just email Kenny Klinect, our Small Groups Pastor, at

Parents of Preschoolers - a new WEE Connect Discipleship Community begins this Sunday, August 28. WEE Connect is a place for preschool parents to make connections, build relationships and walk alongside one another. WEE Connect will meet at 11am Sundays in room D101. 

Care Groups begin Sept 7! Care groups are a safe place to gather with others in the same season or struggle of life for study, prayer and encouragement. Our care groups cover everything from the grief and loss of a loved one, to that of a broken marriage, to supporting those struggling with sexual addiction, raising adoptive children, or walking with a loved one through mental illness. Registration is now open. Visit our Care Ministry page  to register for the Care Group that best fits your needs.

Praise & Prayer

PRAISE for a great Leadership Summit this past Sunday. Leaders for our different ministry areas gathered on Sunday night to be equipped and encouraged for the year ahead.
