"We are so blessed to be able to worship on the beautiful shores of Lake Lanier. We are thankful that Gainesville Marina allows us to use their shelter each and every Sunday. God has done and is doing some amazing things out at the Lake. We would love for you to join us in worship out at the year round lake service."

John Simpson

Lake Service Pastor


Our Lake Service continues to grow and more and more young people are joining us for worship! Our youth minister, Jody Terrell, is enjoying getting to know these students and teaching them from God's Word during the Youth Class on Sundays at 9:00a.m. at the Gainesville Marina Pavilion. Whether you attend the Lake Service or worship on Main Campus, or even if you are not involved in any church, if you are a middle or high school student, this class is for you!
