What should you expect?

You will experience great music, encouraging messages, friendly people, and an enjoyable atmosphere. We believe that the lessons learned on Sunday morning find use throughout the week. We're here to help you connect with the personal hope and practical help that God gives us.

We realize that finding the right church can be challenging. There are many aspects to consider when deciding what fits best for you and your family. We're more concerned with meeting your needs than with what you will wear, so just come as you are.  We have great Sunday programs for children (Infants thru 5th grade) and middle school students.  We are excited to meet you and hope that you and your family would consider being our guests this Sunday.
