Our Services

What are services like?
We are relocating our church to a new neighborhood. Actual services are to begin November of 2014. The church is designed as a neighborhood café and hang out. You can come any day of the week to see the facility and experience more about our ministry.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Not a problem. We are a place to explore your beliefs and ask questions in a safe environment. We recognize each person is on their own spiritual journey and discovering God in the fullest measure takes a lifetime. Nobody has it ALL figured out. We believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God and that the spiritual life is determined through God's self revelation in the Bible. We would be happy to talk about how and why we have come to such conclusions.
