Connect with Our Community
We have been created to live in community and not in isolation. Physically, we do live in a community, but spiritually, socially, and relationally we often live our lives in isolation. We find ourselves with no one to turn to when we have a major issue that has just surfaced in our life. Living in community affords us the opportunity to more wholly experience God through close relationships as we play and pray together, as we encourage and help one another, and as we study and live out God’s word together.
At our church, a community group usually consists of 7-15 attendees in various life stages who meet on a regular basis in someone's home. These communities are about establishing relationships that encourage us to grow spiritually, offer mercy towards one another in our time of need, and, as groups, be the hand of justice in our community and the world around us.
Our Kid & Student Ministry includes all kids, ranging from birth to 12th grade. We are a Jesus-focused, Spirit-filled, and life-giving ministry of Bloom, who's focus is to bring to life the Gospel of Christ in the lives of kids. Our vision is to raise up and empower the next generation to advance God's kingdom, so that our students can take their next steps to a life of significance with Christ.
We are centered around discipleship relationships to foster an environment for our students to thrive on their journey with Jesus. Our ministry approach is based on a caring community and small groups where Godly relationships can develop - a gathering for students to encounter God through worship, teaching and other events, such as mission trips and summer camp.

Our church desires to invest in local ministries and organizations that help fill the gap for people in need in our community. Our approach is to form long-term relationships, where we can invest financial resources and create opportunities for our church body to serve and share the love of Jesus. We're committed to assisting several organizations in our community, including:
Our Lord commands us to "go and make disciples of all nations" (Matt. 28:19). Since 2016 we have had a partnership with a small, mountain village in Guatemala called El Paraiso. Each year we send a team to reconnect with them, run a number of different programs, and share the Gospel. It's an exciting opportunity that our entire congregation supports. For more information on our partnership with the Central American Lutheran Missionary Society (CALMS), with whom we partner, see their website.
"I have no use for cranks who despise music, because it is a gift of God. Music drives away the devil and makes people joyful." - Martin Luther
The Reformer got it right; music is an awesome gift of God, a gift that we enjoy giving back to Him and to one another in worship. If you play an instrument or sing, and you'd like to get involved, please contact us. Make a joyful noise!
