We would like to answer a few of your questions to put you at ease before you even get here. From start to finish, we want you to be comfortable. Once you arrive you will be warmly met by greeters and ushers that can answer your questions.

Our services feature great worship, insightful teaching, and dynamic children's ministry. Services last about 75 - 90 minutes.
