Student Life Camp

The last week in June, several students will be heading to Talladega, Alabama to spend a week at Shocco Springs Conference Center. Please pray for this trip and for our students as it has the potential to be life-changing for many of them. Also, we have several students who could use a little bit of financial support, so please contact Drew Byers or the church office if you’d like to help out.

We are handwriting the four Gospels by allowing our church members to become actual scribes, penning the same letters that Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John wrote. We are nearly 50% complete! Sign up in the Atrium on Sunday mornings if you are interested.
