Easter Weekend
We're celebrating April 15 & 16
We will host Easter services in the Auditorium on Saturday at 5:30pm and on Sunday at 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am. Both the Cafe Venue and the Tent Venue will host services at 9:30am and 11:00am.

Passion Experience
The Passion Experience will be open from 12:00pm to 8:00pm on Friday, April 14.
We have transformed the Auditorium into a space with beautifully designed stations that lead us to reflect on various elements of Christ's crucifixion. Come reflect and worship with us. There is no "service" during this event - it is a self-guided, come and go as you please type of event. Childcare will be offered for ages 2 and below from 4:00pm - 7:00pm.


We want to connect everyone into an environment where they can develop meaningful relationships and grow in their relationship with Jesus. This is one of the most important aspects of our church. If you want to get connected here, we encourage you to join a group.
