Parking Team Needs:  We are seeking to grow the parking team, a rotation of people on Sunday mornings, to welcome people and direct the flow of traffic. This ministry makes a huge impact as they are often the first impression of our church. They also offer direction for handicapped drivers and are ready to offer additional assistance when needed. Please sign up at the registration cart or online.


Family Worship & The Holidays:  Join us today at 9:30 a.m. in the Student Center for our November Sunday Seminar. As we prepare our hearts for the upcoming holiday season, we want to help parents and families celebrate well, and disciple their kids intentionally, to the glory of God. With a combination of teaching on the Biblical foundation for family worship, and practical tools for creating a Christ-centered home, this will be a helpful resource for families young and old. 

Man Up Dinner:  Men, join us on Friday, November 15, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. for our annual Man Up Dinner! We are excited to hear from our new Grow Pastor, Mark Spansel, and enjoy a time of fellowship. Come, be encouraged, meet other men of our church, and enjoy some tacos and churros! The cost is $20. We hope to see you there!

Go Saturday Serving:  Join us for our second annual Go Saturday serving event! On Saturday, November 9, we will be going as a church body to serve at Hope Gardens in Sylmar! Hope Gardens is the women's and children's branch of the Union Rescue Missions, and is a housing facility for those experiencing homelessness. We will be putting on a carnival with games for the moms and kids, as well as serving lunch, and having a special worship and teaching service. We will also be doing a work service project. Join us to help with the carnival or service project from 9 am-2 pm! Register online today.

Go Spotlight:  Our Go Spotlight for November is Axia- Foster and Adoption Support Group. Axia is a group designed to support and care for foster and adoptive families in our church and local community. Our heart is to care for kids who have come from difficult situations and to support the families caring for them. We also seek to provide tangible opportunities for church members to wrap around and support these families as the needs can be great. Whether you are a foster family, adoptive family, if interested in learning more, or would just like to be a support person, we invite you to join us. Axia meets the first Thursday of each month. Dinner and childcare provided. For more information please contact Jefferson at
