You Matter to Us

God’s redeeming love transcends everyone’s story, no matter what our past may look like.

As a church, we believe life transformation happens by connecting with others in small groups. However, when additional care is required, the following ministries help address unique life circumstances. You do not have to go through life alone!

Care Groups

We desire for our church to meet individual needs through relationships with others in community (e.g. small groups, events, etc).
When additional care is required, the Care & Support groups listed below help address unique life circumstances.

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery helps you discover and heal from the hurts, habits and hang-ups that keep you from experiencing God and living well with others. This biblical program is based on the words of Jesus and speaks to your psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.
