This weekend we are making some changes to help us serve families in a greater way. In this message, we’ll catch a vision of what the future looks like when your family and your church work in harmony to create “orange.”

There’s incredible impact when the church and home work together to strengthen families!

If you’ve ever had to wait in a grocery store check-out line, you can instantly tell that people in our society place a high value on outward appearance.

He values something far less visible but far more valuable.
