SUNDAY MORNINGS – WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT

Doors are always open early, so feel free to come early for a cup of coffee or tea. We encourage you to find us in the lobby on a Sunday for answers to questions and to find out ways to connect.
We have a pretty straightforward purpose: we want to grow deeper in our love for God, warmer in our love for each other and wider in our love for our world. Before the service join us in the front lobby for coffee or tea! We’re contemporary, but we value tradition. We’re casual, but not about our faith. We value personal study and application of God’s word to life and presenting the Gospel clearly and creatively. Our goal is to see people personally and passionately follow Christ.
