Sunday Evening Concert Outreach
Our first concert outreach for 2018 will feature the music of “For All Seasons” on Sunday, March 18th at 6:00 pm. For All Seasons delivers music that marries artfully-crafted lyrics with rock and modern pop. Their songs are born out of time spent with the Lord, and their hope is that those who hear their music, connect with Jesus on a deeper level and chose to seek Him in every season of life. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite someone to hear great music and a message of salvation. This concert is for ages nine and above. Please contact Pastor Henry Duran with questions.

Ministry Opportunities — Get Involved!
If the Lord is leading you to get involved, and you’ve been attending for at least six months, there are great ministry opportunities to serve the Lord in the Audio Ministry.
