Who We Are
What To Expect
When We Meet
We exist to take the Gospel to the corners of Clark county and lead students into encounters with God while discipling and equipping them to do the same with others.
Our goal is to help students discover their God given identity, encounter Jesus through scripture, worship. and prayer, gain opportunities to serve each other and to impact our city.
You can expect a fun and casual environment at all our gatherings. We have space and activities for introverts and extroverts to thrive. There's video games, art stations, ping pong, pool, basketball, and more! This time is followed by a time of passionate and student led worship, short message, and time for small groups where we can connect and communicate with peers.
Meets every Sunday during the 11am serivce and Monday nights from 7:00-8:30
Meets every Wednesday from 7-9pm and are encouraged to sit in during our 6pm gathering on Sundays
