Silence & Solitude

In today’s fast-paced world, we are constantly bombarded with noise and distractions. This volume not only surrounds us but invades our minds, making it difficult to hear the gentle whisper of God. The practice of silence and solitude invites us to step away from the noise, to be still and know that he is God.

In this two-week series we will explore the spiritual discipline of silence and solitude, learning to create intentional spaces for quiet closeness with God. Let’s relentlessly pursue Jesus…by stopping.

Kids & youth programs

We have fun, safe and encouraging programs for the young people in your life.
