Our environment is casual and we simply want you to come as you are to our Weekend Gatherings. You don’t need to be put together to do life with us. If you’re on the fence at all, we want you to hear us say…JUST COME! We remind ourselves a lot around here that we are REAL people, with REAL problems and a REAL HOPE!


We love kids. If you are planning on bringing your children with you, we think that’s awesome. Taking care of your children & providing an amazing experience for them is one of our greatest values. You’ll want to give yourself a few extra minutes, especially if you’re a first time guest, to get your kids checked into their respective environments.
