BRINGING FAITH TO LIFE

Welcome!

We are a warm, inviting Christian community where everyone is welcome.  Inspiring worship experiences and challenging learning opportunities encourage us to serve others as well as to laugh and play together.

 

We believe that the Christian faith should be lived rather than memorized.  We allow ourselves the freedom to ask difficult questions about God, about our world, and about how we are to live our lives to the fullest.  Wherever you are along your journey through life, we will help you find encouragement and support, rest and refreshment, joy and laughter, inspiration and challenge.
