September is here! Summer has come and gone, school is back in session and many of us are finding our way back to a normal rhythm. We invite you to explore all the opportunities to make connecting with God and our community of believers a priority. We’re here to help you dive deeper in the Word, build new relationships, and serve in new ways as you cultivate your love for Jesus!

Here are some ways to get ready for our Fall Kick-Off…
