  • kidstime (Age 3-5th)

    Our goal in KIDSTIME is to help kids find and follow Jesus.  When a caring person, faithfully loves and points a child towards Jesus, then we see God do incredible things. This year kids will dig into the Life of Jesus by using a curriculum called DIG IN. The kids will meet in the sanctuary for a large group worship and Bible Story time. Then they meet in classrooms by age to do followup activities related to the Bible story.  Our hope it that kids don't just learn about the historical Jesus but they get to know him personally.  We desire for them to discover that Jesus is a real person--a real friend--who make a difference in their lives today. A few highlights of the year include the Fall Party, the Kids’ Christmas Program, the Nursing Home Outreach, the Timberlake Camp Presentation and the Family Fun Night. 


  • CHAOS (6th-8th)

    Our Goal is to see the next generation become fully devoted Christ-followers. We do this by communicating the Gospel message (Rom. 1:16), helping them grow in their faith (2 Tim. 3:16), getting connected with the Church family (Rom. 1:12) and teaching them to serve God and to go out and tell others his message (Matt. 28:10-20).


    The Jr. High students meet on Sundays at 9:30am & Wednesday nights during the school year at 6:45pm – 8:00pm.

  • REACH (9th-12th)

    High School youth or Reach meets Wednesday evenings during Wednesday Night Live.


    Reach is located at the couches in the large basement area. Craig & Christine Quiring and Bret & Laura Jost lead the group. It begins at 7:00pm.

  • Alpha

    Alpha creates an environment of hospitality where people can bring their friends, family and work colleagues to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Alpha makes it easy to invite friends to have a meal, hear a short teaching talk, and have an opportunity to explore life’s biggest questions in a safe and respectful way. 


    The evening begins with Food, our Wednesday Night Meal, starting at 6:00pm.


    There there is a talk. This is a 20-25 minute video we watch together. These explore the big issues around faith, life, and who is God?


    Finally there is discussion. This is time for people to share their thought, ideas, and opinions on what we just heard. There is also no obligation to say anything. It's an opportunity to hear from others and process what we learned, all in an open, friendly environment.

Small Groups and Kids Sunday School

Small Groups and Kids Sunday School are available each Sunday morning for these age groups as well. The youth are challenged by their leaders and teachers to seek how to serve God with their lives through words and actions.

Huskie Power Packs

The Community Outreach team has been involved with the Huskie PowerPack program through Heartland Community Schools. This program provides extra food items for families on the weekends. This past year we have been meeting with representatives from Bethesda, Heartland School, Henderson Foodmart and Henderson MB to improve the PowerPack Program. We have established three common goals- to meet the needs of families by providing supplemental food, to decrease the stigmas of needing help in our communities, and to be an entry point to help build resources for families. This collaborative continues to explore new ways to achieve these goals.

Baptism

Baptism is an outward sign of an inner transformation. It symbolizes death to the past, cleansing from sin, and incorporation into a new community of faith, and a new life. If you are interested in Baptism, give us a call.



Membership


We believe in the value of individual Christians entering into a covenant relationship with other Christians, all organized in local churches. Membership is certainly not required to attend any of our events, but we do encourage all Christians to partake in local church membership somewhere.



Missions


When it comes to MIssions, our primary belief is that the purpose of the church is to fulfill the mission of Christ. As such, we are not a church with a "missions department" rather we, as a local church, are the expression of a larger, global mission to Grow Disciples and Multiply Churches who Glorify God and Transform Communities. But in addition to that, we also have national and international missionaries that we love, support, and learn from.
