All On Campus Events For This Weekend Are Cancelled


Working toward a better world.

Adult Faith Formation

Never Stop Growing. That's our motto for adult faith formation. Faith should be dynamic and transforming, not stagnant and lifeless. So we seek fresh ways to know God and one another by sharing, learning, and serving together.

Youth Ministry

We seek to be a place where 6th-12th grade students can form authentic relationships with one another, our church community, the world at large, and with God.

Children's Ministry

Kids are curious. Our faith formation for children encourages them to experiment and ask questions as they create and build their relationships with God and with one another.

Faith & Fellowship

Learn how community, fellowship and service intertwine as we seek to live as disciples of Christ.


Know God, grow in faith, go into the world equipped to serve.

Music Ministry

Experience the joy of singing and performing music that glorifies God. Our music programs are for all ages from preschool to adult.
