In our ever-changing world, we need something we can hold on to. In days with screaming headlines & polarizing points of view, we need someone to speak to our soul. In a season overshadowed by unrest and social discord, we need light to shine through the shade. God’s Word, His timeless truth, and steady love illuminates the darkness.

We hope you’ll join us for Summer Lights as we look to the Scriptures for direction, peace, and hope.
