WHAT TO EXPECT

Walking into a new church can be intimidating and at times terrifying depending on your previous church experience. If you are considering attending one of our worship gatherings, we pray that you would take the vulnerable step and come check it out! We can’t fully describe what you will experience, but at least we can try to give you an idea of what to expect.


On a Sunday morning you might see some people in a suit and tie, others in a t-shirt and shorts, and many combinations in between.  We believe that God doesn’t expect us to clean ourselves up before we come to Him and His church; so we say, come as you are.


Our worship gatherings usually last around one hour and fifteen minutes and include worship through music, the preaching of God’s Word, and prayer.  We also periodically celebrate through communion and believer’s baptism.


Our prayer for every gathering is that you would feel welcomed and loved and that you wouldn’t leave the building thinking about how awesome the architecture was or how funny (or funny looking) you thought the preacher was. We want you to leave our gathering amazed at God’s inescapable love expressed through the finished work of Jesus Christ. If you don’t remember anything when you leave our gathering except how radically awesome Jesus is, we view that as a huge success.​​​​​​​
