Wired word Connect

We desire to connect with God and others in a meaningful way.  We believe God uses others to encourage us and to reveal his love.  While we gather to worship as one community, we connect and find significance in many different ways. We have listed a general overview of the many ways you can get involved in this community, try out a few.
