Join us at the church building each Sunday morning at 9am for our Celebration followed by a time of prayer at 10:45am!

Grow Zone for children 3yrs old through 5th grade is offered at 9am (Check-in children on arrival in the lobby). Children join their parents in service until they are dismissed to Grow Zone after worship and prayer. On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate communion and the Grow Zone children will remain with parents in the Celebration.

The Nursery for little ones up to age 3 is available during service every Sunday morning (parents can drop off before they enter the sanctuary or at anytime throughout the Celebration).

The 9am Celebration will stream live on Facebook, YouTube, and the Live Stream page of this website for those who wish to stay home.
