These groups meet during our Sunday Worship service at 10 am.

at this location we continued to pray and seek a permanent location for the

wilderness, worshiping at a hotel and a church on Beaux Mountain road.

 In October 2017 God lead us to a property on 2400 Bethabara Road, a former church that had been

converted into a daycare center. After a meeting with the congregation we
