Our Services

What are services like?
Expect a welcoming atmosphere, free coffee and a friendly greeting. Drop your kids off with a thriving but safe children's ministry where they will learn biblically based lessons geared towards their age group. Our weekly services feature upbeat, contemporary worship, and a well delivered message. Services are identical, so pick the time that works best for you. Our Jere Whitson campus congregation meets in the gym at Jere Whitson Elementary School.

What is the community like?
We don't do Sunday school. Kids enjoy an age-oriented worship service at the same time as their parents. Instead of mid-week services, small groups (we call them life groups) meet in homes during the week for fellowship, bible study and prayer team. We build great community and church family this way. We have thriving youth and college ministries, as well as men's and women's ministries. We also have a singles ministry that isn't just a dating program!

What if I'm not a Christian?
Our goal is to be seeker sensitive. Not a Christian? Lots of folks in our congregation started out that way, so we understand where you are coming from. Come join us one Sunday, and wear your jeans - we do! Ink or piercings? That's cool, too...
