What To Expect

A typical service will last about 90 minutes. We sing a good mix of contemporary and traditional music that is led by our worship team. There is childcare available and activities for all age groups. Plan to hang around after the service for fellowship, coffee, and meeting new people.  
Please note: no food or drink is allowed in the sanctuary.




High-energy worship and a dynamic Bible-based message is what you'll get here!
We believe the Word of God is divinely inspired, infallible, and is the final authority.
When you’re here, you’re family.  Everyone is welcome, from individuals to large families.
