Secret Church is an international simulcast done every year by David Platt and his organization, Radical. Navigate and New Life students have been invited out in past years, but this time we are opening it up to the entire church! Come out TONIGHT from approximately 7:00 p.m. until midnight. This year’s series is going to be incredible, as we are tackling the subject of “Who Am I? What does the Bible say about… Sexuality and Gender, Race, Genomics, Abortion, Infertility, Artificial Intelligence, Justice, and the Metaverse”? There is no cost.

Join us on Wednesday, May 4 at 6:30 p.m. for our next Prayer Gathering. This prayer gathering will be every other Wednesday and will be one of the ways we can bear one another’s burdens as we seek to faithfully follow Jesus together. There will be a potluck prior to the Prayer Gathering starting at 5:30 p.m.
