Connections that go beyond a worship service.

God has something for you. In the midst of chaos, He brings certainty, in the midst of pain, He brings healing, in the midst of defeat, He brings victory. Whatever you are feeling and whatever you are experiencing, God has something for you. Gather with us under the CROSS and as the SUN rises knowing that God is WITH you, LOVES you, and is FOR you. (Gentle exercise is optional).
(Bring a chair, towel and water.)
