Sundays at 10am

Say hello, grab coffee, check-in your kids if you have them, and join us for worship!

I’m New!

Awesome! Stop by our Connection Center on Sunday, or let us know below.

You’ll fit right in.

Our worship services start out with engaging worship through music and prayer. Then someone will teach from the Scriptures about the life God is calling us into. Lastly, we’ll finish with a time to respond in worship and prayer.

The main theme for our gatherings? Discovering how God might be getting our attention, and then stepping out in faith together.

Staff Leaders

We believe the Biblical vision for leadership involves many people throughout the church, not just “the professional pastor.” Everyone has the call to use the gifts God gives them to love, serve, and lead others. The group below is our paid staff leaders, but it’s just a handful of our church’s leadership.

What do I do when I get there?

Feel free to park where ever you like. Once you walk in, we encourage you to say hello to someone and let them know you’re new. We have a Connection Center right by the fireplace with more information about Grace and free coffee at the cafe. If you have young kids, you can check them in towards the back of the cafe lobby.

What’s the service like?

We see our services as a time to celebrate what God has done, experience his presence, and to be prepared to live differently for the week ahead. We often start with engaging worship, which helps us become more aware of God. Then someone will teach from the Scriptures about the life God is calling us into. Lastly, we’ll finish with a time to respond in worship and prayer.

What do you do for kids?

Your first step is for kids in 5th grade or younger to get checked in. For birth through kindergarten, we have people who would love to watch them for you during the service so they can play. For older kids, they usually worship with everyone at the beginning, then take off for a special interactive teaching and small groups afterwards.

What should I wear?

Don’t feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.

Can I attend if I’m... ?

We are a church who welcomes people from all life experiences:
Young, old, male, female, rich, poor, religious, atheist, married, single, divorced or living together, gay, straight, transgender, current or recovering addict, left-wing, right-wing, apolitical, black, white, brown, church background, no church background… and everything in between.
Every single person is made in the image of God, is worthy of love, experiences the pain of sin and brokenness, and can know Jesus personally.
