What to Expect

When you enter the building, you’ll have the chance to meet other members of the community before the service starts. As we gather to worship, you’ll find our music is varied including traditional hymns as well as contemporary songs.

After singing and praying together, we listen to a biblical message. Often, we work straight through one of the books of the Bible. Other times we study a single passage of the Bible as part of a topical sermon series, aiming to show what the Bible reveals about God and means for our lives.

For Kids

Is There Anything for Children?

We provide a safe space to care for children and help them learn in a fun, engaging environment each week.

We have nursery available starting at 8:45am on Sundays and extending until the end of Sunday School. Parents will register and check in their child using our Kid Check system.

For those with children in PreK to 1st grade, we offer an age-appropriate class called “Children’s Church.” Children are dismissed with their leaders during the worship service and can be picked up after the service in the 2nd floor Children’s Wing.


Sunday services last 60-75 mins – you are welcome and encouraged to stay after to meet the pastor or visit a Sunday School class.

The sermons last around 30 minutes. Each sermon strives to faithfully explain what a passage of the Bible means, how it fits within the redemptive storyline of Scripture, and how it connects to our modern lives.

Our worship services are blended: We sing the rich hymns of the faith and incorporate more contemporary songs. The priority for us on any given Sunday is not style or genre, but how the songs we sing communicate a theological message, engage our multi-generational congregation, and aid in the discipleship of those who sing them.

You’ll find some people wearing suits with ties or dresses and others wearing jeans and a t-shirt. We invite you to come as you are, dressed as you like.
