The WKND 2023
February 17-19

The WKND is one of our favorite ministry events of the year!! If you’re not familiar, The WKND is our version of DNOW - a local, weekend retreat designed to help middle and high school students connect with God, grow in their relationship with Him, and grow in community and fellowship with one another. Each year, a collection of local student ministries gather together to worship together, learn from God’s Word, build relationships, experience life change, and form lasting memories. We look forward to this all year long! Click the button below for more details.

Is there absolute truth? What is your biblical worldview? This is a powerful study, produced by Love Worth Finding, that explores the erosion of truth in our culture. Truth is eroding at break-neck speed. In our upside-down world, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH stands as a pillar of reason, reminding us of the importance of truth and is designed to equip and encourage Christians to be pillars of truth in their communities. Room S201 REGISTER FOR NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH
