These means are the ordinary channels that God uses to draw us into a fruitful relationship. Learn how the main paths to grace--Prayer, Searching Scripture, Receiving the Lord's Supper, Fasting, and Conferencing--can guide your path as a Christ follower.

Wednesday Student Celebration
We encourage all middle school and high school students to join us from 6:30 – 8:00 in our Student Ministries Area. As we gather, we have carpetball, ping-pong, 4-square, and foosball happening. We begin our night with a time of worship together, led by our Praise Team. This is always a special time. Worship is typically followed by games or other fun activities. Our groups then divide for a time of learning as we seek to learn more about what it truly means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Our night ends with a time of worship and closing prayer together. Guests are always welcome, so invite someone to come with you. See you on Wednesday nights as we celebrate together.
Megan Brown, Director of Children's Ministry - Room 22
Our top priority of children's ministry is to engage in learning to "love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39, NIV) The motive is that together we will be moved to love God by inciting wonder, love life by provoking discovery, and love others fueling our passions.
