Colossians 3:20-21
Fully Alive Families

Believing in Jesus brings a new quality of life. That newness is not so much about a public persona as it is about a transformed character evident to those who know us best--our families.  In the last message, Pastor Rich described that newness in relation to marriage. This Sunday, we will focus on family dynamics--parents and children. What does it mean to be a parent? How do children develop confidence and healthy independence? What is required to be a “good parent”? 
 
Join with us Sunday morning as Pastor Chris Martin continues our journey through the book of Colossians.

How to Respond to the Refugee Crisis

Friday March 10 7-9pm

The crisis in immigration is worldwide, impacts millions of people, and has created a political firestorm in our own nation. How do we as believers respond to the refugee crisis? How does this impact the movement of God across the world? How can we imitate Jesus? Join us for an evening of Biblical teaching and discussion on this pressing cultural issue. Coffee provided, but no child care.
