What to expect at this Easter Community Sunrise event? Although it’s our usual Sunday gathering times, this is not like our usual Sundays! We’ll have refreshments, worship, WSKIDS activities (including an Easter Egg hunt!), a sermon for all people, and chances to respond to the message that we’ll be sharing all weekend: You have a purpose. You have hope. This happens all in one place.
WaterStone Church mission is to gather regularly, share frequently, and live missionally. At WaterStone we help you step out of your comfort zone, through the challenge in front of you, and into the victorious life you were made for.
