Campus Ministry

Sunday School

A Sunday school community that seeks to raise up kids into a genuine relationship with God. Jesus taught that we “must become like children” to truly enter the kingdom of God. Therefore, we believe that kids have a heart wired to know and enjoy their Creator. We meet together after every Sunday 10 AM service to sing songs, pray, read bible stories, and memorize scripture. We have two main age groups; kids (ages 3-10) and Junior High (11-14).

Young Adults

A group of college and post-college young adults committed to living out their faith in a way the resembles Jesus’ own life. Our community strives to resemble the example put forth in Acts 2:42-47, embracing and practicing weekly fellowship, sharing meals with each other, worshipping God together, and to studying God’s word. Our goal is to hold each other accountable, to encourage one another, and to help each individual grow deeper in our love for God and each other.
