Ministry News


The Gospel of Mark | Part Two:  Join us as we continue our journey through the book of Mark.  We are asking that each of you find a small group community to study with and come alongside our church family as we use Discovery Bible Study to learn what Mark’s gospel is saying about God, people, how we can apply it to our lives, and who we can share Jesus with.
