What To Expect

Where To Start To Get Connected

You are welcomed here. We’d love to meet you!

Our service times on Sunday are designed to be both God-honoring and beneficial to all who attend by having a focused time of worship through song, Biblical and practical preaching and teaching, prayer, and creative use of powerpoint and video.

We observe communion on the first (1st) Sunday of each month, celebrate baptism as required and occasionally have special services that celebrate God’s unique work in our lives. Our youth Church will also be in operation.

How does our church stand out?

We are a Church that believes God has called us to unite our community, and minister to the multi-cultured individuals and multi-dimensional needs within our community.
