WEEKLY GATHERINGS

JAMES 1:22 ESV

"BUT BE DOERS OF THE WORD, AND NOT HEARERS ONLY…" 

Our approach to ministry is to give students the freedom to experience what we hear from the word of God. We hope to help each person develop an all-encompassing view of what it means to be a follower of Christ. There will be elements of fellowship, worship, prayer, service, study and challenge. We are helping develop DOERS of the WORD!


DOER GROUPS WILL START AGAIN ON

SEPTEMBER 12!
