Upcoming Events


operation christmas childNovember 17th – 24th

Collection week for this year’s Operation Christmas Child is November 17-24th.
Shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child may be picked up from the foyer of the Worship Center starting Sunday, November 2nd. Please return them no later than Sunday, November 23rd to our church. This year, we have a goal of 1,000! Please, if you take a shoebox from our church, drop it back by the church, instead of another location, so we can meet our goal.

Information on how to pack a shoebox will be included, but feel free to visit for more information.


Can you believe it’s almost that time of year again?! To get the Christmas season started off right, our Worship ministry has several programs for us to enjoy starting in December.

the manger buildDecember 13th      9:30 – 11:30am      Gameroom

The goal of “The Manger Build” is to see men build life-sized mangers with their children (or someone else’s) on a Saturday before Christmas. Then to cheer for those men as they keep Christ in front of Christmas for their families by leading a series of devotional experiences using the manger as a teaching tool. For more information about “The Manger Build”, contact Jay Dove at

Hundreds of thousands of college-aged young people will come together in stadiums and arenas across the USA and around the globe to worship Jesus, breathe in His presence, be shaped by the His Word and join hands to extend His mercy and grace to the world.

So we hope you’ll join us in Atlanta and find your place in His story, the story of the “Jesus generation.”

The cost is $300 which includes ticket, travel and hotel! You don’t want to miss this!
