Our Services

What are services like?
We strive for worship to be vital, hope filled, and life giving. Sermons are biblical, easily applied to life circumstances and filled with humor and wisdom. You are liable to hear a variety of music - from Bob Marley to Mozart is used in our worship of God. Guests are not singled out. Dress is casual. Many opportunities for growth and change -- but no pressure tactics.

What is the community like?
Multigenerational. Average roughly 275 on a Sunday AM. Community is open, grace filled and enjoys fellowship around the coffee pot. The church is intentionally structured to invite people to take their next step in their faith journey - regardless of how simple or advanced that next step might be.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome everyone to explore and to wonder out loud about their thoughts, beliefs, and what is the ground of faith for their being.
