Partnering with Parents to lead children to know Jesus

Did you notice that our mission begins with you? The parent. We want to partner with you through this season. A season that might be filled with anxiety, fear, and something you might have never guessed happening in your home, yes…homeschooling. 

During this time, your kids may have lots of questions and maybe even some anxiety and confusion. Click the video below to hear what Pastor Jonathan would like to share with them.
