Branch Forest Campus


Our campus is OPEN for weekend gatherings!!!!

We thank God for His continued protection throughout the course of this pandemic and consider it a tremendous blessing to once again gather together in person. And because we recognize the need to be good stewards of this blessing, we continue to work hard to ensure that every in-person worshipper experiences a safe and healthy environment to gather in. To that end, we are continuing to require that ALL ATTENDEES WEAR A MASK when at our facilities, as well as practicing social distancing, and implementing best practices for houses of worship in accordance with the Governor's Office and the CDC.

If you or someone you've been in close contact with has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you not attend services for 14 days following your most recent interaction with them. And, if you're unable to join us or not yet comfortable with in-person gatherings, we invite you to tune in to our weekly YouTube broadcast of services from our Fondren Campus, every Sunday at 10:45 am, featuring teaching by our Lead Pastor Stephen E. Banning.

While we currently do not provide any separate programming for children or youth, we want you to know that our services are created to connect with every age group in your family. Join us, every Sunday, starting at 11 am for a one-hour service. It would be our pleasure to greet you in person. God bless.

Jesus taught us that "following Him" required giving up the right to self-governance in order to live the way that He wants for us to live, through the power of the Holy Spirit (click Matthew 16:24)

It is easy to forget that being "Christian" isn't simply about what we can "GET" from Jesus, but about "WHO" we are becoming as we walk in obedience to God's Word. Bottom-line, the call to take up one's cross (daily) is an invitation to follow in Christ's example of "radical" obedience to the Father's will.

We invite you to join with us, every Sunday, as we walk through the pages of the Bible to discover how - by our obedience - we can live our lives in such a way that brings GLORY to God!
Sundays | 11:00AM

At our church, "community" isn't something that we DO; it's who we ARE because we believe discipleship happens when children, teenagers, and adults come together to build friendships, study God's Word together, and share in life's experiences. 

For us, CONNECT GROUPS is the vehicle by which this happens, and we would love for you to be a part of our community. That's why, every week, several relational groups meet online. If you would like to join any particular class, click HERE to be directed to our ONLINE CONNECT GROUPS page for information about class offerings and times.
If you have a praise report to share, we would love to hear about how God has blessed your life or answered your needs and share it with the rest of the church family to encourage and bless them as well.

THIS IS MY STORY is a simple tool that allows you to record your testimony from your phone or tablet, and send it to us to share with the congregation. For instructions on how to record and send us your video for a future broadcast, please click HERE. If you would like to record your testimony at the church, simply click the RESERVE link.
