October 15th, 2017 is Light YOUR World Sunday. 
We will not COME TO CHURCH as usual but instead will gather to BE THE CHURCH.


We invite everyone to sign-up for a service project. Many of our projects will be multi-generational. These projects help us to reach out to the community and become the hands and feet of Christ.
