Becoming a Titus 2 Woman - Leaving a Legacy

January 1st - December 31st, 2018

Do you love God and his word?

Do you have experience in life to share?

Do you have a heart to see women grow in their faith?

If you answered “yes” to those questions then you are ready to follow God’s command in Titus 2 to encourage and develop godliness in younger women—those younger in faith, in life experience as well as in years.

For ladies wishing to be mentors, there is a 10-12 week commitment for training. Carmen Roberson will be teaching the class and will be using "True Woman 201 - Interior Design" by Mary Kassian & Nancy Leigh Demoss as curriculum. Currently, mentor training is scheduled to resume in the Fall of 2018.

Anyone wishing to become a mentor or wanting to be mentored, please click 'register now' at the right to fill out the assessment form. We use these assessments to match mentors to mentees. We look forward to you becoming a part of our mentoring program.

Camp KidJam

June 16th - June 19th, 2018


Camp KidJam is a sleep-away camp experience for our rising 3rd through rising 6th grade students! Students and Small Group Leaders go away for a 3-night, 4-day experience of high intensity Large Group Jam Sessions, Small Groups, Team Competitions and Individualized Tracks! There is even an opportunity for Small Group Leaders to participate in training each day with the very best Small Group Coaches on the planet! We will provide travel from the church to the camp that is being held at Lander University in Greenwood, SC.

Here is a link to a recent highlight video!

This Year's Theme:


What makes you move? Music. Pizza. (To the buffet line. ) An SEC Football Championship game. (Might make you hoarse, too.) This summer, Camp KidJam dives into the lives of some people who were moved, not by something—but by SOMEONE. When these individuals met Jesus face to face and discovered who He was, their lives took a drastic turn. // The Shepherds ran out to tell everyone they’d met the Messiah. // John the Baptist drew crowds into the desert as he spoke about Jesus. // The disciples dropped everything to follow Jesus. // Zacchaeus scrambled up a tree to see Jesus—then vowed to pay back every penny to the people he’d cheated. // And when Nicodemus snuck out to see Jesus, his whole world flipped upside down. When we meet Jesus—we move, too. He turns our way of life inside out. He moves us to live for Him and the people around us instead of just ourselves. // Love God, love others: that’s the message of Jesus. // Movin’ Me challenges us to discover more about Jesus and allow His love to change our hearts forever. It encourages us to share that love with friends and family as we allow Jesus to move us in His direction. Ready to make your move? Join Camp KidJam this summer… for Movin’ Me!

$0 - $395

In addition to four days of worship, teaching and Bible study, Student Life Beach Camp will move you to the sand and surf, where you will experience a combination of God’s beautiful creation and unforgettable time in Christian community.

We will spend our week at a beach front hotel, and enjoy time on the beach and/or pool each day. Plus, on our last day we enjoy special times of celebration and reflection on what God has done that week, as well as enjoying a nice meal out together.

We will be staying 5 nights in beachfront condos at The ElCaribe Resort in Daytona Beach Florida. We will have our meals, small groups and free time at the resort. The resort has two pools and ofcourse the BEACH! The beach has lifeguards. We will will spend our afternoons catching waves, playing games or sitting by the pool.

Our mornings and evenings will be filled worship led by The Rend Collective and Elevation Worship Band. We will hear truth from D.A. Horton and Greg Groeschel.

Our week culminates on Friday night when we worship on the beach by fire and hear students testimonies of how God has worked.
