A Message from our new Youth Director

If you would have asked me 10 years ago if I’d be a youth director or even working for a church, I would have said you were crazy. My faith journey has been a whirlwind of a ride, but it has led me to where I am today, and for that I am eternally grateful.  Next events: Sat. May 11th - Youth Night at Crossroads 6-9pm.  Sat. June 1st - Youth Night at Crossroads 6-9pm.

Sunday School

We are invite people of all ages, both children and adults to be part of Sunday school.  We all can learn from one another, so YOU are invited to discover and learn more about some of the key stories of our faith.  Sunday school will meet every other Sunday (next is April 28th)  throughout the year. Families are welcome to stay for worship afterwards at 10:15. We'll be utilizing the Holy Moly! curriculum again this year.  We will focus on stories from the Hebrew Scriptures or Old Testament. ​


We are studying core stories from the Bible, digging deeply into the most important 40+ scripture passages. This is a new and a renewed time…continuing to study and grow in faith with people we know well and others we don’t know as well.  If you’ve ever wanted to begin Bible study but weren’t sure if it is for you, come and give it a try.  We would love to welcome you! Coffee and Timbits will nourish our bodies, as community and faith development nourish our hearts and minds.​
