Our Story

 
Our story is one of God’s grace and provision. We began through the ministry of Bay Presbyterian Church when their congregation saw a need, and felt a desire to start a new church in east Bonita. After much planning and prayer, they found a Pastor and began the initial process of starting a church.

 In the beginning, a lot of our ministry and planning was accomplished with only a handful of families and individuals. It began in a living room. But we began to outgrow the living room and God provided a place to begin Sunday worship and foster community at the local fire station.

With some time, plenty of hard work, prayer and a great group of people this small bible study has turned into multiple small groups, multiple bible studies, multiple service projects, a youth group, and many other branches of ministry.

We’ve only just begun and we could use your help! Our story is still a new one, but it is rooted in the bigger story of God’s work in our community and we’re excited to see what God will do next. Come join us!
