Faith at Home will return to a nightly format that will coincide with Dr. Wiles preaching emphasis, The Gospel…It’s Still Good News! God created the home as the “seat” for spiritual development. With this in mind, our church is making an intentional effort to partner with your family by offering Faith at Home. Faith at Home is a family-focused experience where preschool, children, youth and parents will gain a better understanding of what it means to truly be a family planted in our community and our world.
Each night we will provide you and your family and free meal, followed by age grouped Bible lessons on The Big Story for our Preschoolers, Children and Youth while Dr. Wiles shares with the parents. Then we’ll join back together for a family worship and challenge to take what we learn back into our homes and community!
Be sure to take part in Faith at Home this summer as we strive to bless our families, influence our community and grow in our relationship with God and others! Our menu will be finalized and posted very soon. Faith at Home is FREE, but we do want you to pre-register so we will be best prepared to feed and lead you and your family! Registration will open the first of April.

Summerfest is BACK this year! Monday, July 31 – Friday, August 4, 2017
Even though the renovations to our Sanctuary won’t quite be complete, we did not want another summer to go by without offering this exciting and fun week! We still will not be able to offer some of our regular classes due to the renovations, but we plan to be creative and make it a great week of learning and fun!
If you are new or are wondering “what is SummerFest?”, SummerFest is an arts/music and sports camp offered to children entering 2nd – 7th grade in the fall. All the children learn a musical and then present it at the Friday Night Celebration for their families and friends! Children sign up for all different kinds of classes including dance, drama, legos, cooking, dodgeball, pottery, soccer and more! Registration will open the first of April!
