The Next Step: Vision

"God has put before us a great privilege and responsibility... to reach the next generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have been entrusted with the treasure of the Gospel. Imagine with me the young families and kids who will be transformed by this Gospel as we reach out to our community. Please join me and the rest of the congregational leaders as we take this NEXT STEP. Please PRAY for God’s blessing and guidance and give generously as we seek to reach the next generation with the life transforming message of Jesus Christ."
– Pastor Scott Gilchrist
