Planning to visit?

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 (Children join their parents in service and are dismissed to Grow Zone before the sermon). Our nursery for little ones up to age 3 is available during service (parents can drop off before they enter the sanctuary or at anytime throughout the Celebration).

The 9am Celebration will stream live on Facebook for those who wish to stay home.

The celebration recording will be posted to YouTube on Sunday afternoons. You can use this link to get there: YouTube Link
