It's MORE than a Building!

A Journey in Photos!

It's really happening. God is so good, He is so faithful. Our prayer has been to build a building that we can call home and it's happening. We know it is all in God's perfect timing, and as things progress, we want to share it in photos. The "Journey in Photos" page will be updated as the building takes shape, so please check back often. It's MORE than a building!

A Journey in photos

But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were far off

have been brought near by the blood of Christ.


Ephesians 2:13
