Covid-19 Relief & Community Partnerships

As Covid-19 affects our communities, we know that this is the time for the church to rise up. We have always been about more than the Sunday Morning experience, and this is a great time to shine! We are made in the image of Jesus - and we have a unique opportunity to partner with Him and other organizations to change our world, both now and forever.
