Vision Sunday

Celebration Church exists to reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus Christ that they might experience a life of purpose and fulfillment that God always intended for them. We do this by loving unconditionally, serving sacrificially, and reaching whosoever in order that we make much of Jesus.
