Who We Are

Nurturing Individuals In Grace

We see it as our mission to follow Jesus' example by nurturing individuals in grace. To do that, we are inspired to build four connection points into our daily lives. We connect to our Savior (through personal and corporate worship), to His saints (through small groups), to our service (by finding our fit in the church), and to all seekers (by building loving and humble relationships with those who don't know Jesus so they can meet Him through our lives).

What to Expect

What are services like?
Our services are pretty casual. We usually start off with music led by an orchestra and/or rock band. Then, we collect people's money - not to make us rich or to make us important - but to show that Jesus has leadership over our finances too. And while that's happening all the kids younger than 6th grade come to the front and get a short little devotional aimed right at them on their level. Pastor David will then preach (which is just him reading the Bible and then trying to help us understand how we need to live). We frequently have special dramas or videos in the service as well.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Feel free to drop in and see if we're real. We're not perfect, and we hope you won't expect us to be, but we are striving to live by the words of Jesus everyday.
