About Our Church
What Are Your Services Like?
We try to encourage conversation and community. We welcome questions, differences of opinion, and give everyone a chance to share. We talk about our lives together through fellowship and lift each other up in prayer. We celebrate God through a combination of traditional and contemporary music styles. We learn together through Bible teaching with a focus on engagement and spiritual growth.
Service begins with a time of praise and worship. Afterwards, the children are dismissed for the children’s program downstairs. After that we pray for one another and listen to biblical teaching. Then we break up into small groups for a short discussion focusing on how we might apply the teaching in our own circumstances. Participation in the discussion is entirely voluntary, so you won’t be pressured to contribute if you’re not comfortable doing so.
Why Attend a Sunday Gathering
Sunday gatherings are safe spaces to be able to share our joys and our struggles with each other, and release our hearts to God. As we gather, we encourage each other in our strengths, and lift each other up in weaknesses. It is a place to be empowered and equipped to go out into the rest of our week loving God, ourselves, and others more.
