In 2018, Evergreen Church celebrates its 30th anniversary. God has done so much in us and through us – church plants, salvations, and discipleship. But what does our future hold?
We are excited to roll out some ways that the Evergreen locations will unite for what we are praying is even greater Gospel impact in the future. Kingdom Builders will be a huge part of that because it’s all about Acts 1:8 and our mission to advance the Gospel locally and globally through various initiatives and church planting.
The generosity of our saints and the sacrifices they are willing to make for Jesus and the advancement of his church has helped us get this far. Kingdom Builders is a vision campaign that unites generosity and mission in a way that allows us to keep taking steps towards bringing God more glory.
On January 7th, we start to roll out plans for 2018 Kingdom Builders in a 4-week shared series. Please start to pray about how God might have you be involved in building His Kingdom in 2018!

Thank you for your patience as we make repairs to our hallways and classrooms. A few weeks ago, we had a water main line break that caused damage to our building. We are working with contractors and insurance to repair all damages. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we appreciate your understanding as we do our best to get things back in order.
Christmas is a season filled with expectation and celebration, but if we’re being honest, it’s also a season filled with madness. As Christmas approaches, the focus of Advent sometimes gets lost amidst the chaos and craziness that comes with the holiday season. So, to help you focus your attention on the heart behind this special season, we’ve created a four-week devotional to walk you through Advent. Each week focuses on a specific aspect reflected in the birth of King Jesus—hope, peace, joy, and love. Pick yours up at the Info Table or download the .pdf HEREand spend the month of December in the Word.
