From the day you were born, you have been on a quest. You have been searching for something more, because deep down inside, you have a sense that life must have some kind of meaning and purpose beyond mere existence. Maybe you’ve even wondered if you’re the only person who feels this way.
What to expect
Our Sunday morning services are casual and allow you to come as you are. The first portion of each service is set aside in a time of congregational praise and worship. Children ages 2 and above join their parents for the music portion of the service and then are dismissed to be checked into their age-appropriate classes. After some brief announcements, our services continue with verse-by-verse teaching from Pastor Chris.
