"Making Followers of Christ One Person at a Time."


Ephesians 4:11-16

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors, and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ. From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work!”

Albert and I will never forget holding each of our children in the hospital for the first time. As we gazed into their eyes, a sense of wonder and anticipation filled our hearts, holding all the hopes and dreams, ages and stages, ups and downs, and honestly downright work it would take to grow and grow up with each child.  Conscious or unconscious there was an understanding that they were not intended to be the cute, soft, squishy baby forever. There was so much more, and we were an important part of the MORE.

In 2023 God led us to the word “rooted,” believing that God was inviting us to focus on the hidden parts of our lives. Though the world looks at the “flashy fruit,” God praises the “secret roots.” Together, we “grew down,” learning what it was to be rooted in freedom, wisdom, times of change, and ultimately God’s word!

In 2024, God has led us to the prophetic word “growing together!”  Like a child, we were never intended to stay in one stage forever. Rather, there is always more! This year, join us as we GROW UP TOGETHER, GROW MORE, and GROW OUT.

Growing is life! 

We love you guys,

Pastors Heather and Albert
