The 'After Church' Experience is designed to minister to people outside of the four walls of the church building. We recognize that life's biggest challenges happen "outside" of the formal church experience. We want to ensure that our busy lifestyles make room for God. We challenge ourselves and others to show we are unashamed, undeniable, and uncompromised in our love for Jesus Christ! "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:35).

ACE #103: Why I Don't Really Complain About the Cold Much...
I have a pillow.
I have a couch.
I have a car.
I have food to eat.
I have a home.
I have a bed.
I have shoes and clothes.
My child is safe and warm.
None of these is my story or my daily reality.
Whether it's in color or in black and white...poverty and homelessness are real. #grateful
If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or profit, but fear your God, that your brother may live beside you.
