Education & Study

Making disciples is the priority of the Great Commission Jesus gave us in Matthew 28:19-20. Part of the method He gave us in that passage involves teaching We offer Bible-based education classes for all age groups as part of our effort to more thoroughly equip people to live for Christ and serve His purposes in the church and community.

If you have ideas for a new class or are interested in becoming a teacher, contact Pastor Carey.

Missions & Prayer

These groups gather regularly to pray for various needs represented in the church or the ministries we support. We have launched over 20 Live Dead Pray Bands to lend prayer support to teams planting churches among unreached people groups in areas that are typically hostile to Christianity and the gospel. In the future, we will be launching more Pray Bands related to other ministries we support around the world.

Care & Support

These groups work to provide spiritual, relational, and emotional support to their members who are working through difficult situations, transitions, or life-altering issues.
