We Choose

We Choose is our ministry plan—it provides a framework for our church to pursue spiritual health and advance God's Kingdom both within and outside of our local congregations. We believe our mission of making disciples is intertwined with serving our communities at home and the global church.

Supporting Mosaic Families through Respite Night

June 11, 2024

Mosaic is our special needs and disabilities ministry, and our staff and volunteers do an amazing job supporting all our Mosaic families.

New Series | Self Made

June 6, 2024

This past weekend, we began a new teaching series—Self Made. It is a badge of honor in American culture to be considered a self-made man or woman. With good reason. Yet, being the god of our own world has a dark side. When we are at the center, the pressure is on us to find happiness, meaning, and security. A message promising freedom turns us into slaves—anxious, tired, and disconnected.
