Services & Events

Partnering with Summit Pacific College’s ‘Omega Team
(students that Volunteer) we have started a Tuesday evening RAN Mission drop in Kid’s Club.
After the Family Meal at 6 pm parents drop their kids off and pick them up at 8 pm.
Crafts, games and Bible stories fill the time.

1820 HOUSE is our Sunday 6 pm chapel service held at the Mission.
The goal is to create a comfortable place where relationships can be formed and hopefully where people will feel comfortable inviting those without a home church back to theirs.
