NEXT SERMON SERIES: DON'T MISS CHRISTMAS

Please plan to join us for our next message series entitled “DON’T MISS CHRISTMAS starting Sunday, December 4. The wise men missed the Christmas event, yet they sought the Christ child anyway, determined that even if they missed the event, they would not miss the experience of welcoming heaven’s gift to humanity. Join our Senior Pastor, Dr. Lance Watson as we engage in the Christmas experience and move towards the Christmas event: welcoming Christ anew into our lives!
