About Us

What to expect

Ah, "Church." Nothing in our culture is more necessary and few things are more frightening. Sometimes it's helpful to know what to expect, though. Right? Check this out:

  • You will find a relaxed, friendly atmosphere where most people dress comfortably. No three-piece suit is necessary, unless you just want to wear that. Come just as you are.
  • Grab a cup of hot coffee from one of our baristas at the "Gospel Grounds" coffee bar! Our beans are locally roasted and freshly ground. We have single-origin coffees from areas in the world where we have missionaries. We also have a very cool private blend we like to call "747." Come see why. And if you're more of a tea or cocoa person, our baristas have got ya' covered there too.
  • Services are about 75 minutes and include great, highly energetic music with a live band singing songs you'll know from the radio. Our pastors bring a message from the Bible each Sunday and that message speaks to issues you face on Monday.
  • There's no pressure. You have the abilility to remain anonymous if you wish and we won't "single you out" as an alien in our midst!
  • Childcare is provided for birth - 4 years old. We also have powerfully cool, awesome programs for all children from kindergarten through 5th grade. See our Ministries page for specifics on children's programs.
