What’s Summer Festival?

It’s an all-age, all-church, week-long party! This year, we’re bringing the best of the southwest to Clark County, and y’all are invited. (Kids – if you’re 15 or under, be sure to bring an adult with you.)

Our hope is that in the mix of these sometimes goofy events you’ll unplug from your daily routine and connect with God, creation and His people.
