BEFORE WE START ANYTHING WE START HERE. THIS IS WHAT WE'VE BEEN CALLED TO AND WE'RE NOT ASHAMED OF IT. IN THE FOUNDATION OF OUR HEARTS YOU CAN FIND THESE 4 THINGS:
THIS RELATIONSHIP HELPS US BE LIKE JESUS. HE REVEALS, TEACHES, COMFORTS, EMPOWERS. HE IS REAL AND HE IS REQUIRED.
WE CARE SO WE CONNECT. WE LOVE PEOPLE AND OUR GOAL IS TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS THAT CREATE COMMUNITY. WE WEREN'T CREATED TO BE ALONE - WE NEED EACH OTHER!
WE ALWAYS STRIVE TO DO THE BEST WITH WHAT WE HAVE. EXCELLENCE IS A CHOICE THAT WE CHOOSE TO BE.
IT TAKES A TEAM! WE BELIEVE WE ARE ALL THE GENERATION GOD IS SPEAKING TO. OUR COMING TOGETHER IS WHAT THE LORD DESIRES.

Bringing People Together
We believe God created us to live in relationship. With God (the trinity) and with others. Only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through relationship is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Seasons exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
When you identify to an age bracket, you are very limited on your effectiveness. Some people start having kids at 19, where others have them at 32. Which means some may be grandparents at 42, when others become grandparents at 62. These are two completely different ages, but yet the same season. Some 19 year olds are in college, and some are starting families. These are two completely different seasons.
