Our Services

What are services like?
Humor and practical life application are utilized to create a message that is relevant and easy to understand. Our desire is to showcase the freedom of a grace-based relationship with Christ.

What is the community like?
We foster an atmoshphere that is encouraging and supportive. We do not try to get everyone to cross the same "t" and dot the same "i" on everything found in the Scriptures. Legitimate differences on minor, non-essential matters are allowed so long as the spirit of unity is maintained and an attitude of humility is expressed.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Non-Christians typically appreciate the low pressure "come and see" attitude of the church. We are a place that encourages exploration of spiritual truth without developing an "in your face" unloving and confrontational style.
