what to expect

We understand exploring a new church can be an intimidating experience. When you join us you'll encounter an informal atmosphere, genuine warmth, uplifting worship, caring Children's ministry, challenging youth studies and excellent Bible exposition by our pastor.

What can I expect when I visit your church?

You can expect to be welcomed and feel "at home" here. You’ll find that we come from many walks of life.  We range from babies to senior citizens, bikers to CPAs.  But we are all part of one body, gathering with each other to learn from, and love, and worship our God together. Feel free to dress up or dress casual; you’ll see a little of both here.  We are more interested in you than what you wear.

What will be available for my children?

Children's Sunday School is provided for infants all the way through 6th grade.  Children in 1st-6th grade remain with their parents for worship and are then dismissed to their classroom. Visit the Child Check-in Station at the Connections table to sign-in.  Jr. and Sr. High School students meet in The PATH classroom after worship for their own lesson.

How will your church be unique?

We are not trying to be unique - we just want to be sincere and obedient to what God wants from us as His people.  We are seeking to know Him more completely, to praise and worship Him, and to love Him by serving the people He loves.  We learn and communicate truth from the Bible in ways that people can understand.  Quite simply, we are people who love God.  He is our reason for being.  We invite you to join us.

How can I help out?

First, just show up! We care more about being the church than doing church. When you are ready to jump in and get involved, there are many places where you can fit in - small group ministry, music ministry, discipleship, children’s ministry, student ministry, media, sound, greeting, etc.  There’s definitely a PLACE for you!
