August 16 - Picnic in Cleveland Park

Our version of a family reunion - without any matching t-shirts. All are welcome as we gather at Cleveland Park at 12:15. The meal is pot-luck, so bring a dish to share. We will also be celebrating baptism! Contact if you want more information or want to be baptized! Come enjoy our beautiful city with a few hundred of your closest friends.

August 27 - Women's Fall Bible Study

Put this on your calendar ladies: Women’s Fall Bible Study starts Aug. 27 and we will be working through a “thought closet” makeover with the book Me, Myself, & Lies by Jennifer Rothschild. There are two meeting times available: Thursday mornings from 9:00-11:00 AM or Thursday nights from 7:00-9:00 PM. More details coming soon!

August 23 - Lots Going On

Two Services Start Back Up

We'll begin offering Sunday morning services at 9am and 10:30am again on August 23. Mark your calendar!

5th Graders Rise Up

Are you a parent with a newly minted middle schooler? Our first-time sixth graders will make the transition out of the CITYkids environment to joining the Illuminate student ministry for middle and high schoolers on August 23. You can find out more about when Illuminate meets here. Also feel free to contact our student pastor, Andre Griner, at for info about a meeting for parents of rising sixth graders. Note: Middle and high schoolers join the adults in the main auditorium at Sunday morning gatherings.

CITYgroups start back

Our CITYgroup gatherings took some time off for the summer and will be starting back up in August. Have you already connected with a CITYgroup? Contact your leader about the fall schedule. Never been a part of a CITYgroup or looking for a new way to connect? These small weekly gatherings at homes all across the city are a fantastic way to find a place to belong. Contact Mike Thomas at to get plugged in.

There you have it -- that is what’s coming up! We look forward to a thriving fall. We hope you’ll be a part!
