What to expect

We invite your family to join us this Sunday for our worship gathering! We believe that church should be exciting, engaging, and purposeful for the whole family. You can expect to be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people who are genuinely excited to see you.

Our gatherings last about an hour, and they are filled with modern music and biblical, Christ-centered messages. Arrive a few minutes early to enjoy a hot cup of coffee on us!
Kids are invited to participate in Nursery or Kids Church, during the message portion of the 10:45 gathering. To learn more about Nursery and Kids Church, click below.
