Longing to Gather

If we would have known that Sunday, March 8, 2020 was our last opportunity to gather and worship corporately for months to come, what might have been different?

Perhaps it’s because of all the children’s songs about this historical event, or the number of baby nurseries decorated with […]

Ask Pastor Mike

We checked in with Pastor Mike Adkins for his answers to some of your most frequent questions. Do you believe this pandemic is a sign that we are living in the “end times” described in Revelation?
