Willing to serve? 

We are looking for some generous volunteers to serve, teach, and play with the kids while their parents are encouraged and built up!

We will feed you breakfast on Saturday morning. You can expect to have fun as you build into the body of Christ as you guide and care for the children! You are not required to lead anything, and no previous experience is required. More info when you click 'Volunteer'.


What is the ‘Life In The Family’ mini conference? 

A morning for families to be encouraged and equipped! Parents will be connecting and learning together while the children are learning and enjoying activities, crafts, music, and snacks.

Why the ‘Life In The Family’ mini conference? 

Healthy spiritual lives do not happen by accident. Our marriage, relationships, and parenting flow out of who we are and who we are becoming. When we are seeking to live the abundant life Jesus came to give, we bring the desperately needed presence of Jesus into our marriage, our relationships, and our parenting.
