Like many journeys, ours has been a great adventure. Like yours, our story is part of a much bigger story with Jesus as the main character and God's rescue and salvation of the world as the main narrative. May your story and ours will come together for such a time as this.
Our story began when Gerry and Jamie LaFond started a bible study group in their home in Tolland with a few other families in 1999 with the belief that, “If this is God it will grow.” And it did. In late 2000 the growing community, now at over 40, moved to larger space in the Twin Pond Complex in Tolland, CT.
As the new community continued to grow, tragedy struck when Pastor Gerry passed away unexpectedly in 2003. Through many tears and prayers, the community came together with a renewed commitment to the vision to reach the northeast region of Connecticut with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
In September of 2003, the leadership was passed to Weston and Karen Brooks. Our diverse community has continued to grow and prosper to 250 people with the same vision to reach the northeast with the Good News of Jesus and to plant churches in underserved communities.
