Your Path to Connection

Get in a Group

God created us to live in relationship with Him and with others. Small groups create space for us to care for others and to be cared for. They launch us into learning and growth – all in the context of community. It’s part of our design!

Join a Serve Team

Serving others is an essential part of what it means to be the church to one another. Ready to find your fit on a serve team? Both short-term and long-term opportunities are open across all our ministries.
Hospitality

Current Series

All of us face times when life doesn’t go as planned. In those seasons, our trust in God’s goodness is tested. We need a resilient faith to not just survive these times but to come through them with a deeper relationship with God and a stronger love for people. The story of Joseph paints a compelling picture of a life centered in that kind of faith. Within the story, you’ll discover how tests and trials can lead you toward forgiveness, redemption, and hope. Join us for the next 6-weeks at Ward Church as we explore, “The Life of Joseph.”
