Online Sharing and Prayer – Sunday at 11:00AM
During this season, many are unable to gather for in-person worship. As a result, they feel lonely and disconnected from the rest of the faith community.
We encourage you to join us for a time of sharing and prayer after our live-stream so you can connect with and support others who are worshipping online.

University Ministry Update / General Message
We are asking students to wait for us to build a SG ministry to serve university students year-around. We are actively praying for God’s help, and working with the church on this.
In the meantime, we will work with you to feel belonging in our community. Please speak to Abraham ([email protected]) whenever you are in-town (for school or work) or have any questions about SG / Community life in general.
Starting in May 2022, we are committed to plan for something permanent for university students.
Please inquire with Abraham ([email protected]) about permanently joining a small group (university or young adult) when you are in town and able to commit.
Offering is a privilege and responsibility for members. Our encouragement is for each member to prayerfully seek God’s guidance for how they ought to be giving in this season. All offering goes towards funding ministries locally and globally.
