Build Community


Christian Family Movement (CFM)

Families, faith and fun -- that's what CFM is all about! Through prayer, discussion, and action, families grow in faith as they provide support and friendship to one another. Families learn to live their faith in their everyday lives at home, in our communities, and in the market place. For more information about CFM, visit the organization website at this link.

N.E.W. Ministries

N.E.W. Ministries is an outreach ministry to women who are new to the community and adjusting to the transition of moving. Join us for this class and let us guide you as you let go, start over, and move ahead with your life after the move. N.E.W. is designed to embrace, support and encourage through a biblical and practical group study. Come meet new friends, receive practical help in adjusting to a new area, and find encouragement to see your move through a Christ-centered perspective. This class is based on the book, "After The Boxes Are Unpacked."
