We hope you are able to experience a taste of who we are from your online experience. If you are new to our church, just starting a relationship with God, or rekindling your faith with Jesus, you will find these links helpful. Below you will find out what to expect during our worship gatherings.
Our 10:30 a.m. worship gathering is energetic, inviting, thought-provoking, and creative. Our messages are grounded in God’s Word while relevant in today’s world.
Parking is available on the west, south, and east side of the building. The main entrance is located on the south side of the building under the large white canopy.
We recommend you arrive about 15 minutes before the gathering. This allows enough time for parking and getting seated in the worship center. If you have children, this will give you enough time to take them to the nursery or check them into Gathering Point (children’s church).
The least of our worries is what you wear; we are just thrilled to have you join us!
You are welcome to worship as a family, but we have a few different options to suit parents with children of different ages during the church gathering.
Sunday School meets from 9:00-10:10 a.m.
- Nursery: Basecamp
Infants and toddlers (up to 36 months old) may go to the Nursery located near the Worship Center Lobby. Your little one will spend the Sunday School time in a safe environment, and receive tender-loving care while learning that the Bible tells them about Jesus and that he is their friend.
- Preschool: Explorers
Three-year-olds through Pre-K may go to the Preschool Suite to enjoy lessons planned especially for their growing minds. They will learn about Jesus through Bible stories, worship music, crafts and other fun activities.
- Elementary: Trekkers
Kindergarteners may go to the Chapel for fun and energetic worship music. They then move to their small group classroom to enjoy lessons and games planned especially for their unique age group.
- 1st through 4th grades may go to the Chapel for fun and energetic worship music, the Bible lesson and large group interaction with the Bible lesson. They then move to small group classrooms to study how the lesson applies to their lives, play games and work on Bible memory.
- 5th graders may go to the Chapel for fun and energetic worship music. They then move to small group classrooms to enjoy lessons, games and service projects planned especially for their unique age group.
- Middle School (Free Life X-Factor)
6th – 8th grade students gather in the Middle School room upstairs (201) for worship. They break into smaller groups for Bible study and discussion. This is a great place for them to get to know God and His Word while connecting with other students.
- High School (Free Life X-Treme)
9th – 12th grade students meet in the Senior High Youth Room upstairs (208) for worship, learning, friendship, and a time to stretch their thinking as they dig into God’s Word.
- Adult Communities – Adult Communities are more than just a class. It is an opportunity for you to become part of a community, a family. Get connected in one of our Christ-centered gatherings on Sunday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. We have a class for all life stages so please visit our Adult Ministries page to learn more.
During the Worship Gathering
The Worship Gathering begins at 10:30 a.m.
- Nursery: Basecamp
Infants and toddlers (up to 36 months old) may go to the Nursery located near the Worship Center Lobby. Your little one will spend the gathering time in a safe environment, and receive tender-loving care while learning that the Bible tells them about Jesus and that he is their friend. If your child was in the Nursery during Sunday School, he or she may remain in the Nursery through the Worship Gathering.
- Gathering Point: Explorers
Three-year-olds through Pre-K may go to the Preschool Suite to receive care given during the gathering. They will learn about Jesus through Bible stories, crafts and other fun activities. If your child was in the Preschool Suite during Sunday School, he or she may remain in the Suite through the Worship Gathering.
- Children in Kindergarten and Older
Children this age experience multigenerational worship with their family during the gathering. Children’s worship guides and crayons are available on both the west side of the Lobby and on the east side of the Lobby near the Nursery. The worship guide builds on the lessons they learned in Sunday School and provides an area for them to take notes from the gathering. As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
