Lead pastor Tim Birdwell shares,"We are newly positioned in a church building on Sunday mornings! The space has been amazing, but what's been even more amazing is three of the principals at the school all go to our church now! In addition, we just baptized a high school student who walks his three brothers over to church every Sunday by himself. I also got to baptize my 9 year old daughter, which is another huge praise. So thankful."
