This fall, as we walk through the Hall of Faith together, we invite you to join us in memorizing Hebrews 11. Over the next 11 weeks, our challenge is to memorize all 40 verses of this chapter. Our staff has compiled several tools and resources to help you rise to the challenge!...
Why do we pray "in Jesus' name"? Maybe it’s important to ask ourselves, do we know what this phrase really means? Do we fully understand the meaning and power of these words? Do we think that God will hear us better if we say that we come to him in Jesus’ name?...
This trip not only fueled and stirred my affections for God and missions, but having the Providence church body commission us the Sunday before we left was a moment I will never forget.

The Dominican kids who were with us thought we were nice, but that we talked about a “God” who was only for us...Keep Reading
Our prayer is that God would empower and equip each of our members to make disciples who make disciples. As we all engage in this mission, our dream is to see this kind of movement sweep across our community....Keep Reading
