At the heart of any vibrant and healthy community are strong and healthy families. Characteristics of healthy families include time together, affirmation, effective communication and values and convictions. To see more on this, click here. We strive to create an environment that promotes the value of the family and its individuals. From birth through life stages, it is our belief that a foundation in Christ is essential for spiritual, emotional, moral and relational health. Below describes some of the offerings we provide to strengthen the family.
Jesus' Rangers Camp (J.R. Camp) is an original creation of our Sunday Kids' Ministry leader, Heather Lundberg. Her great idea is engaging kids, ages 3 - 5th grade, with live skits and strong Bible lessons in a year long curriculum through a camp like atmosphere. The teachers look like park rangers, the classrooms have tents and trees. Heather and her team help kids learn about God and Bible truth through this fun-filled environment. Sunday mornings start with adults and kids singing together in the worship center at 10 am. Kids are then sent off with leaders to go downstairs for the JR Camp experience. They will see the skit and then divide into age groups for the lesson. Parents then pick them up after the service. Nursery care is available for both JR Camp and AWANA.

The Gathering is over for the summer. Last month it was incredible. We had West Coast Worship come and lead a worship time. It was great! There were over 50 people there from various youth and college groups. West Coast Worship is going to be leading Junior High Fall Retreat worship in October.
Baptism Sunday was incredible. We baptized a bunch of youth from our group which was a major highlight for me. I also got to baptize my middle son Caleb. Good times!
