Most Needed Items list


As we journey in life, we come across a wide span of opportunities
and challenges that we want and need to traverse. In some times
and places, there are bridges we need to cross to escape the fears,
doubts, pride, and changes that are stalling our journey.
This fall, we will build these bridges together as we leave behind
what is holding us back and find the courage to journey toward
what is waiting for us on the other side.
Join us for kick-off, worship, and church as we make this journey together.
