Happy 4th of July
Our campus will be closed this Thursday, July 4th, to observe Independence Day. Celebrate Recovery will still meet at its normal time and location, excluding Celebration Place and The Landing. All other activities should plan to take the week off and we will see you this weekend!

Come Hear Pastor Mike 
Pastor Mike will be here the whole month of July as he brings us a series called Secrets of The Good Life! This series is based on John 10:10, “I have come that you might have life, and have it to the fullest”. Join us in our Traditions and Cornerstone worship as we learn about living the full life and the abundant life Jesus offers all of us. 

Julian Is Here!
