Cultivate

To strengthen this generation and grow the next generation into a deep, abiding relationship with Jesus Christ.

O God, you have taught me from my youth, and I still declare your wondrous deeds. And even when I am old and gray, o God, do not forsake me, until I declare your strength to this generation, your power to all who are to come. Psalm 71:17-18

In November of 2018, having never retreated from anything God has called us to, our church body prayerfully committed to 3 goals in 3 years, resourcing what he has chosen to grow.

This effort demands full participation from our entire church giving with joy, in a manner pleasing to the Lord – not giving equal gifts but gifts of equal sacrifice.
