If you’ve already been our guest at one of our Sunday services, your next step in getting connected at Morning Star is coming to our Connect event.

No matter who you are, connecting at a larger church can be confusing or even intimidating. But we at Morning Star believe that there is nothing more important than being connected to Jesus and to His church. That’s why we created our Connect event—so people of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures can come and find it easy to connect and be a part of God’s family at Morning Star.

At Connect, you’ll have the opportunity to meet other people new to Morning Star and some church staff, as well as learn more about who we are as a church, what we are about, and where you fit into God’s plan here and around the world. We do this in a relaxed atmosphere, with some great food and fun conversation. So take the next step to connect and sign up for the next Connect event. We look forward to seeing you there!

Israel study tour 2018

Israel Study Tour 2018

October 21st - November 1st, 2018

with Pastor Scott and Denise Nelson

For thousands of years, no place has been more precious to God’s children than the land of Israel. God used the land to shape the lives of His people in Bible times, and He is doing the same today. A study tour to the Holy Land is a wonderful faith-maturing experience. It’s one of my greatest joys in ministry! Every time I’ve had the privilege to lead a group to Israel, I’ve returned home more in love with Jesus, more committed to His cause. Every time.

We’ll worship, we’ll pray, we’ll learn, and our hearts will be knit together in one profound, life-enriching experience after another.

If you’ve ever longed to go to Israel, I urge you to take advantage of this outstanding opportunity. Would you pray about joining us? Let’s start planning for the trip of a lifetime together!

Pastor Scott
