Who We Are

We’re being changed by God’s love & truth.

We are a group of people who have seen how messed up we can be and we are grateful that God is putting us back together. We have discovered that God is real and that his love is the best thing ever. And we have started to experience God changing our lives. This church is a place to heal, laugh, think, and find family. We hope you will help us make it better.

Our Services

What are services like?
Each Sunday at 8:30AM and 10:30AM we come together to meet with the Living God, listen to Him speak to us, and respond to Him. We have a relaxed, enjoyable, and gracious atmosphere while maintaining a heart of worship and love for God. Sunday services consist of Bible teaching, worship music, and prayer. During this transition time of opening back up, we will have family groups of chairs, placed roughly 6 feet apart, so we can worship together while maintaining social distancing. Bible Teaching Our pastors teach from the Bible each week in a way that is interesting and motivating. They spend about 35 minutes bringing God’s message to us–verse by verse. Worship Music Our music is contemporary with at least one familiar hymn (usually done in a contemporary way). We usually all stand together to sing, but no one is required to do so. Some people stand solemnly, some raise their hands or move a bit. The atmosphere is relaxed and our hope is that each of us will sincerely express thanks and praise to God. Prayer We pray together several times during each Sunday service. We also have a prayer request section of our bulletin that you can fill out to have them prayed for by the prayer team. Nursery and Sunday School Until further notice, we will not be offering nursery as we work together to encourage social distancing and keep within the recommendations of the County.

What is the community like?
Multigenerational and very welcoming.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome here to seek Truth and Love.
