Important Parent Resource
Intro Meeting
February 6 | 10:30am | Room 159
Have you ever felt alone or struggled with a difficult diagnosis that your child has received? Are you a parent who is in the “active trenches” of raising kids who are considered non-typical? Are you struggling with a neurodiverse diagnosis such as ADD, Autism, or FASD? Genetic abnormalities, autoimmune medical conditions that cause life stresses such as diabetes, CF or other struggles with learning delays or developmental delays?

You are NOT alone. You would be surprised at how many parents, even here at Mainstreet, deal with these same issues. Instead of trying to navigate it alone, why not be a part of a group that shares a common bond, can pray for one another, share resources with each other and get encouragement from God’s Word?

Join us for this introductory meeting to talk about what this group could look like and how we could also be a beacon to our community. This is for parents with kids ages 0-18; basically, for all those who could use some support and encouragement. If you are interested but not able to join that day, please let us know your interest and we can contact you about future meetings. Questions? Contact Melissa Smith (

Our church has access to an extensive video library called RightNow Media! It’s like the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" and has a HUGE library of faith-based videos that you can access whenever and wherever you want—on your phone, iPad, computer, or at home on your TV. As a church staff, we’re always looking for ways to help you develop and strengthen your faith. We believe that RightNow Media is a tool to serve you as you live out your faith at home, at work and in your neighborhood. RightNow Media has videos for everyone—kids, youth, parents, married couples, college students, single adults, working professionals—all aimed at helping you grow. Let us know you are interested HERE. Within one weekday we’ll get you plugged in. Watch for an email from RightNow Media to complete your registration.

In ______________ We Tru$t
Through February 6
Nothing challenges the heart like money. While that may seem like an overstatement in some ways, it disturbingly rings true for most people. Everyone must make choices every day about what to do with money…how to spend it, save it, invest it and leverage it. Those choices always come down to the issue of trust…in what and in whom do you trust?

What to expect on campus Sunday.

  • Face coverings are no longer required but are welcomed.
  • At this time, our auditorium seating is STILL reduced to allow for social distancing during worship for those who may have underlying health concerns or are more comfortable having a little more space at this time.

Even with all the recent updates and changes, we know that things will continue to change, and we anticipate adapting as needed. We will always keep you updated with the latest information. Our hope is that we will all continue to extend grace and love to those around us. No matter the circumstances, we can't wait to worship with you on Sunday!
