Summer Weekend Services

During our weekend services this summer we are going to have a ton of electrifying fun!
We are going to have an extremely awesome summer teaching kids about why God wants each of us to be overloaded with confidence. 
He wants us to live our lives fully alive because we can believe that what He says is true!

Memory Verse:
"I have come so that they may have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way." - John 10:10
