What To Expect

Whether you're coming back to church or you're trying it out for the first time, we know this is a big step for you. Our prayer is that, after your visit, you will begin to rethink your perspective on God and the Church.

Sunday morning gatherings are at 10:30 a.m. in our sanctuary building. Come a few minutes early to make sure you get a good seat.

Check in your children in the sanctuary lobby at 10:20am before sitting down. From 10:30am to 11am your pre-school and elementary aged children will stay with you during the service. At 11am they will leave and attend the KidZone program in our park and KidZone building. At 11:45am you will pickup your children in the KidZone building, across from the park.

If you would like to pre-register your child to save time during check-in, use this page. Then choose GUEST on the check-in computer to find your children's name tags on Sunday morning in the lobby.
