What to expect Sundays

           The Sunday morning worship experience begins at 10:00am. You are welcome to come earlier to grab some coffee and pastries in the cafe (opens at 9am) and worship goes until about 11:45am. We have a time to greet each other, share any neat things going on, give, participate in learning the Word together, and there is a time for prayer and altar time.
             You may be asking, "What do I wear?" Whatever is most comfortable to you.  The pastor usually has on jeans with a polo or button up and some people get all dressed up and some come in a comfortable sweater or t-shirt. We have such a variety of culture and people here that you will feel comfortable in whatever you want to wear.
                  Since children are a huge part of our mission, we have many opportunities for your children to get plugged in. On Sundays by 9:30am, we have a nursery for babies as young as 6 weeks until 2-3 years old across from the main sanctuary doors in the main building.  In the small white brick Kids building is where we have our toddler (3-4 years old) and kids church (K-5th grade).  Middle and High school students join our main Sunday worship experience.  On Wednesdays at 6:30pm is Youth church, along with nursery, toddlers, kids, and adult life groups.
