Sunday Mornings

9am & 10:40am

Sundays are when we gather together as a church body to worship and learn from the Bible. The music is lively and upbeat, and the messages are relevant and rooted in biblical truth. Come check us out – we think you’ll be glad you did!

Join us for a slice of pizza at our next “New Here” lunch. It’s a chance for you to learn more about our church and meet our staff team. We’re a fun bunch. We think you’ll like us! Bring the whole family – let’s get to know each other.

Next Lunch: Sunday, September 15, at 12pm in the Atrium

You can enter our parking lot through one of two entrances on Raber Road. Lot A is closest to the street. You’ll see large “A” signs mounted to lightposts in the lot – these will let you know that you’re in the right place! Look for the green “First-Time Guest Parking” signs in the first few rows of parking spaces. We invite you to grab one of these spots and come right on in through Door A. Our Welcome Team will be ready and waiting to greet you with a smile and answer any questions on your way in!

If you have children, plan your morning with about 10 minutes of buffer time in between checking in and the beginning of the service you plan to attend. When you arrive, look for the big, green sign hanging from the ceiling near the Atrium that says “Kids Check-In.”

In a nutshell, we believe our purpose as a church is to create opportunities for every person to come to saving belief in Jesus, provide a nurturing community for every person to feel that they belong in our church family, encourage every person’s spiritual growth in becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ, and partner alongside every person in building the Kingdom of Christ on Earth. Those values feed into everything we do here.
