We meet on Sunday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30. Dress is casual and and our environment is relaxed. Feel free to come early and hang out with us in our cafe for a cup of coffee or tea and grab something nice to eat before or after the service. We are a community where people can investigate what life with Jesus is all about; a place where you won’t be put on the spot; where you can enter in as you feel comfortable; where you will have the opportunity to invite God to make himself real, and a place where we experience real life-change on a regular basis. So whether you consider yourself to be a Jesus follower or someone who is interested in exploring what that means, we will do our best to make you feel at home!
We are passionate about creating places for children to connect with Jesus and each other on a regular basis. Our teachers seek to teach and impart their lessons in fun, engaging, and creative ways because we want each child to have the chance to encounter the love of Jesus through age-appropriate prayer, worship, Bible lessons and meaningful interactions with their teachers and other children, every time we meet. We currently provide classroom environments for children aged 6months—6th Grade, and check-in begins at 9:50am every Sunday.
We have a small cafe where we serve refreshments, meet new people, and catch up with familiar faces before and after the service. Our adult service usually starts by singing worship songs that express our gratitude and worship to Jesus using relevant, simple language. After a few announcements, our teaching endeavors to connect the truth of the Bible to everyday life, and is delivered in a real and practical way so that everyone has an opportunity to respond by applying it to their lives. We always end our service by offering to pray for anyone who wants it. In short, we want everyone to have a chance to encounter Jesus, respond to his leading, and be changed for the better in some way.
Jesus often said things that turned his listener’s perception of reality upside down. One example was when he told his disciples that the greatest among them is the one who serves people. Instead of measuring people by their power, wealth, influence, or appearance—Jesus made it clear that it’s a person’s willingness to elevate and serve others that dictates a person’s greatness. Authentic humility, love for others, sacrifice, and selflessness can’t be faked—and we want to be community filled with people that love and serve others generously. So, you will find a number of places below that you can plug into and begin serving. You won’t be sorry you did…and you might even make some friends in the process!
This team works hard to create an environment that makes people feel at home from the moment they walk into our building to the moment they leave the parking lot. They do this by setting up our coffee and tea station, by preparing elements for communion, and by setting out nice things to eat before others arrive for our Sunday service. They also stick around after the service to clean up. These teams help to create a warm environment that assists others to connect with Jesus and others. Individuals on this team typically serve once per month.
Our Welcome Team ensures that everyone who walks through our doors on a Sunday morning is greeted with a smile and a warm welcome! They also answer questions people might have, show newcomers around our building, and make sure the building is clean and presentable before people arrive. They work really hard to make sure people are set at ease the moment they arrive, and are vital in helping people connect. Individuals on this team typically serve once per month.
Our A/V Team helps everyone engage in worship during our Sunday service. Whether they are operating the slides during worship, adjusting the sound for the worship team, or making sure the words on the screen are following the sermon, they work hard to help everyone engage with God throughout our service. If you love technology and pushing buttons, then we can train you! Individuals on this team typically serve once per month.

Forming authentic and lasting friendship is central to why we exist as a church. Small Groups are smaller gatherings that we have throughout the week to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. The typical group will eat, laugh, discuss, worship, and pray together. The groups usually meet in homes and last for a couple hours each week. Keep reading to find out how our groups work throughout the year and how you can get involved…

Fall Small Groups: October-December (Break in January)

We are a community that loves leaving the safety of our four walls of our building so that we can serve and love people around us. We encourage everyone that calls this place home to be looking for ways to love, serve, and pray for people around us in our everyday lives. We also plan outings as a church where we do this as a group. We will often go out to do things like: serve people food; give away cold water on a hot day; do some lawn work for people; and pray for people, amongst many other things. We do this to express God’s love for people in a practical and meaningful ways. If you are with us for any length of time, no doubt you will be invited out with us as we love, serve, and pray for people as a church.
