what to expect this sunday



Friendly Environment


God's offer of salvation through the gift of His Son, Jesus, is available to anyone who will believe through faith, that means you and your family as well. We welcome all visitors and try our best to provide a friendly and safe environment! We have some people who wear suits while others wear jeans and t-shirts, so come as your are. We truly have a great (not perfect) group of people from different walks of life that would love to meet you this coming Sunday.

Engaging Worship & Preaching


As people who love and follow Jesus, we believe our lives should be marked by a few key characteristics. One of them is joy in all circumstances. This is what enables us to praise God with songs, led by our talented team of volunteer singers and musicians, no matter what our week was like. Another key is a hunger for understanding and applying God's Word (The Bible) to every area of our lives while maintaining an active, personal relationship with Christ Jesus. This isn't easy, so weekly messages from our pastors are delivered to challenge and encourage us in those areas. You can learn about our pastors and staff also under the section titled Who We Are.



Something For Your Kids


If you plan on bringing any children who are currently in 5th grade or younger, we have classes for them that start shortly after our adult service. Look for our "Kids Check-in" station when you get here and one of our caring volunteers will help you get your children checked in and show you where your kids' classes will be located. An announcement will be made during the service that will let you know exactly when the classes are beginning. While we do have a student ministry for teenagers that meets on Wednesday nights at 6:15pm, teenagers are invited to stay with their parents and participate in the Sunday service.
