Our Services

What are services like?
Emmaus and Celebration Services: Emmaus Worship - Saturday at 5:30 pm Celebration Worship – Sunday at 10:30 am These services are contemporary in style that tell the ancient story of salvation in the musical language of our times. These services are led by the Celebration Band, Vocal Team, and Praise Choir. Adoration Service - Sunday at 9:00 am This is a more tradition service that feels at home to those who like a more "structured" service. The Adoration service is led by a choir and orchestra.

What is the community like?
What should you expect at Autumn Ridge? When you come to Autumn Ridge for the first time you can expect to worship God in a dynamic environment. You will be challenged to dig deeper into the Bible. You will have an opportunity to meet new people and make connections in our café and bookstore. We hope that you will feel welcomed into the family of God at Autumn Ridge. There is no dress code and there are no expectations except that you prepare to meet with God in worship. Our church welcomes people of all ages. We have programs for youth and children during all of our worship services. The children’s program offers a computerized check-in system that gives parents assurance of security.

What if I'm not a Christian?
What do we believe? We believe that God made each of us to love him with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. We believe in sharing the love of God with others through partnerships that serve both in our local community and globally. We believe that God meets us with complete forgiveness through his son Jesus. In worship we express our gratitude for this gift of love, even though none of us deserve it!
