Our desire is to proclaim the Gospel and truly help families grow in community with God and others! We are passionate about having a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ and strive to help people become dedicated disciples. From a dynamic AWANA club to our Mothers Of Preschoolers (MOPS) Program, there is ministry here for your entire family. Worship opportunities include both traditional and contemporary worship services each Sunday and Lifegroups on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Because of our closeness to the Fort Leonard Wood military base, we understand the difficulties of being part of a church for a short time and welcome soldiers and their families to get involved.
