We have been expecting you! Since you have come upon our web site, we hope you will browse around and find out more about us. Then, we hope you will consider joining us for worship, and joining us on this spiritual journey that we are all involved with.
We understand that there are many ways to worship God, and as such we worship in a variety of comfortable, contemporary styles that are blended with many of the church's traditions and rich heritage, as well as being very contemporary and relevant to the community in which we live.  We understand where we have come from, and where we are going on this spiritual journey. We encourage you to consider joining us, no matter what the status or situation in life in which you currently find yourself. We will all make the journey together.  
Where Friends and Family Worship Together!
