Church Is About More Than Personal Preferences

Alumni Update: Church Life

2017 Recap God truly provided over the past year. From the first LIFT conference and our 10th birthday party service to fall kick-off to Christmas, it’s incredible to look back and see how God has worked through the lives of so many people within our church and throughout the city.
