We Are Glad You Found Us

We’re a diverse group of Christ followers who find ourselves in this special place one or more times a week.

Our beautiful sanctuary and chapel have awe-inspiring stained glass windows to help you connect to Jesus and the bright, airy worship space helps to lift your spirits toward heaven. A pipe organ, digital piano, guitars and drums draw out our musical gifts in a variety of styles. Choirs and solo voices lead us in songs of praise to God and expressions of our thoughts and emotions. Banners and altars connect us to the beauty of nature and the sacred objects of our faith.

There’s even a prayer wall to slip a written prayer between the stones as a tangible reminder that God hears our prayers and pays attention to each one.
