It is the mission of The Fountains to: TEACH

Utilizing contemporary theological scholarship to wrestle with the big questions of life, The Fountains will help those who are seeking a deeper understanding of their faith. No reciting of dusty, rote ideas that sound religious. It means using the mind that Jesus told us to use.

Education and Enrichment Opportunities The Fountains offers a full Sunday morning schedule that includes time set aside for all age groups to engage in education and enrichment. This “education sandwich” is offered between our two services from 10:15 to 11am and includes a variety of classes and groups for all ages and interests.

SPLASH (Small People Loving and Serving Him) Children ages 4 – 2nd graders
