INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT PERIMETER CHURCH?  You are invited to attend Taste of Perimeter - a fun, low-key evening that provides your family with an easy way to investigate Perimeter Church!

Taste of Perimeter offers you a sample of how Perimeter works through children in our KidsQuest ministry, youth in The Bricks Student Center, and adults to prepare hearts of all ages to serve our community. Through the telling of the Perimeter Story by our lead teaching pastor, Randy Pope, you'll get a front-row seat in learning how Perimeter got its start. Our hope is that this first taste will whet your appetite to get connected at Perimeter through our Membership Class, where you'll learn a lot more about how and why we do what we do.
