Join us for worship on Sundays at 8:30, 9:50, or 11:10 a.m.
We Can’t Wait to Meet You
No matter who you are or where you’ve been, you’re welcome here. We’re a family of imperfect people who grow together as we ask questions about life and faith. You don’t have to conform to fit in.
We know it can be overwhelming to visit a church for the first time. We want to make it easier. So continue to explore. Listen to a sermon online. Ask a question. Whatever your next step, we’re here to help. We can’t wait to meet you!
Expect a warm welcome. A few of our members will greet you as you walk through the door and encourage you to make yourself at home. You also may ask our greeters any questions about the church and services.
If you’re bringing children, as well, arrive a few minutes early and park on the right side of the building. From there, you can enter through our children’s wing. If you’re just coming straight to worship, you can park on the left side of the campus and enter through the main doors. Accessible parking is available on both sides.
If you’re attending worship, enter through the main entrance on the left side, as you face the church building. If you’re arriving with children, enter through our children’s wing on the right side of the building. Allow some extra time on your first visit, especially if you’re looking for a group to join or bringing children.
Your children should be as happy here as you are. We welcome and provide age-appropriate learning for all children (birth to grade 5), and we have a loving, dedicated nursery available for infants and toddlers. Parents, or other adults, must sign in all kids at the welcome desk in the children’s wing. We also offer pagers to accommodate parents of infants, toddlers, and those with special needs. If you’re checking in children for the first time, please allow a few extra minutes so a host may help you register in our automated check-in system.
Our ARISE Youth Ministry teaches and empowers youth in grades 6-12 to experience God, to love one another, and to serve others. On Sunday mornings, youth enjoy The Gathering, their own 30-minute worship service in the ARISE Youth Center. Small group meetings follow. At 11:10 a.m., they may attend the service in the main sanctuary or help with children’s worship in the gym. On Sunday evenings, youth participate in weekly activities beginning at 5 p.m.
Be comfortable. We encourage you to come as you are, and we provide a casual worship environment in an inviting space. Our members wear everything from jeans to dresses and suits. You might even notice a worship leader or two in flip-flops.
In our ARISE Youth Ministry our goal is to unleash youth to experience God, love one another, and serve others. Learn how your student can experience God on a new level.
For children birth through 5th grade we strive to grow children in Christ and build homes of faith. Find out more about our fun and engaging children’s ministry!
