Where You Can Feel at Home

Whoever you are, wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

We are an open, inclusive, and innovative church that you and your family can call "home."  Our worship services are rich with life and Spirit through our praise band and choir, inspirational preaching, children's messages, live-theater, artful multimedia, even the humor of clowns!  We seek to build a community grounded in Jesus' teachings of unconditional love that heals the heart, values everyone, and makes a difference in our world!
