Back to Church Weekend- September 14-16, 2018
Imagine an annual event centered on churches, involving as many as 3.5 million people at locations around the world on the same day! It’s happening again on September 16, 2018. The event is National Back to Church Sunday®, a movement that has involved over 31,000 churches from all 50 states, over 120 denominations, and 90 countries worldwide.

On September 14, 2018 at 7:00 PM, the church is sponsoring a free movie night for the community to watch, “God’s Not Dead: A Light in the Darkness.” The movie is a powerful reminder that in all circumstances, Christians are called to be a light for Jesus to a world in desperate need for hope.
