What To Expect
We care about you, not what you are wearing. We do not care who you are voting for in the next election or how many tattoos you have. We are a church full of imperfect people who are learning to embrace the love of Jesus and serving others together, and regardless of your story, we believe you belong!
If you have never been and you are considering coming, here’s what you should expect…
Nice people. We LOVE it when someone comes for the first time. But, we don’t always recognize the first-time visitors because so many of the people who come are still fairly new, 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, so feel to come in jeans or whatever is comfortable. Our dress code is simple: wear something 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 environment for kids. Babies and toddlers are cared for by loving volunteers. There’s a preschool room we call "Tater Town" and Kids’ Church for grades one through five know as "The Mark". All of our kids ministry volunteers must pass background checks and have a heart for kids and families.
Practical teaching that connects the words of the Bible to everyday life and music that is lively, including drums and guitars. Don’t be surprised when some people raise their hands as a sign of praise while singing, and do not feel obligated to do so yourself. We create an atmosphere of freedom in our services.
We take risks in faith and stay fast, fluid, and flexible in our approach to church. We do whatever it takes, short of sin, to find people who are far from God. We are crazy about people searching for answers and we will get our hands messy to serve others. 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 do everything for the name and fame of Jesus Christ!
