What to Expect

On your first visit...

Nice people

We LOVE it when someone comes for the first time. We want you to feel welcome and also find out what you need to know, so feel free to say, “This is my first time” and we’ll guide you in!

A casual atmosphere

We care about YOU, not what you’re wearing. We have people who come to church dressed in suits as well as others in bluejeans. Our dress code is simple: wear something. Grab a hot cup of free coffee from our Cafe and sit wherever you’d like! We will NOT single you out publicly or ask you to say anything, and we do NOT expect guests to contribute anything financially.

A fun, safe enviroment for kids.

If you bring your kids, you’ll check them in and out each Sunday using a special labeling system. Babies and toddlers are cared for by loving volunteers. There’s a “Family Room” for those who are having a hard time transitioning. All of our kids ministry volunteers must pass background checks and have a heart for kids and families.

Practical teaching

God’s Word does apply to everyday life.  The Sunday messages are designed to help us remember the greatness of God and prepare us to live for Him during the week.

Relevant music

Music is subjective. Different styles speak to different people.  That is why we offer three worship services with three different styles. 


Everybody belongs – every color, every shape, every personality, and people with every kind of story imaginable. We trust the Bible completely even when we don’t fully understand it. And we value Kingdom growth and invest in multiplying new churches locally, nationally, and globally. And we do everything for the name and fame of Jesus Christ!


You will see our sign on Main Street Extension. Turn into our lot.


As you pull in you will see a sign directing where to park and the location of our main entrance.


Use these doors to enter. This entrance has handicapped accessibility off to the left.

Cafe’ & Information Center

Once inside the building you will see the Cafe’, Information Center and restrooms. Take the opportiunity to get a fresh cup of coffee and ask some questions.

KidZone Check-in

If you have children younger than 6th grade, check them into the “KidZone”. This is a safe enviroment for children.

“The Family Room"

Once your children are checked in we have an area we call the “Family Room”. This is a place you can sit with a child that may have issues adjusting to a new place. It can also be used for parents who have crying children and still want to watch and listen to the church service.

Worship Auditorium

Enter the Worship Auditorium for a time of great singing and a message from God’s Word. Be sure while you are with us to visit the Information Center for a gift and/or fill out an attendance card to tell us about yourself.
