"On the Go" Devotions
On the Go devotions are illustration-centered devotions that are designed for families on the move. Organized by topic, these devotions are easy to teach and apply! If you're looking for some family devotions that are focused on scripture and the biblical principles we can learn from the world around us, look no further!

On the Go Devotions

Parent and Child Dedication Workshops
The Workshop is a time for parents to learn how to actually follow Jesus in every circumstance of every day and disciple children of all ages to do the same.  There is no age limit or expiration date for a parent to dedicate their child(ren) to the Lord and trust that God's will for the life of their child is better than any hopes and dreams we could ever have for them.  We invite parents of preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school children to participate. During the Dedication Workshop, you will have an opportunity to choose a Worship Service time where you will make the dedication of your child public and be prayed over by the church. If you would like to attend a Dedication Workshop, please click the link below to fill out the form below and select which workshop you would like to attend.  Lunch & Childcare will be provided.
