The Struggle is Real
We will begin a new sermon series on Sunday, October 20 called “The Struggle is Real”, which will cover topics that are a little different from a common Sunday morning. While we are excited for this series and believe it will be powerful, we also want to make you aware of the topics in advance so that you can decide whether you would like your child to attend the main service or not depending on the subject matter. For more information visit

Series Topics:

October 20 – Family Dynamics
October 27 – Lust
November 3 – Anxiety and Depression
November 10 – Abuse
November 17 – Gender and Identity



Our mission is “Joining Children on their Spiritual Journey.” The purpose of KidStep is to intentionally focus on ways that we can help children from birth through fifth grade take next steps of faith.

We welcome your children at 9 and 10:30 AM to an environment that is kid-safe, kid-friendly, and kid-focused. Our vision is to equip volunteers and empower parents to lead the next generation to live and love like Jesus as they take next steps of faith. Each Sunday our volunteers love and care for your children, while building relationships with them through age-appropriate worship, creative Bible teaching, and small groups. For the safety of the children, we have a check-in system that uses parent pick-up tags. Look for our Kids’ Check-In Stations on Sunday mornings to receive your child’s nametags and your parent pick-up tag.

We are excited to join your children on their spiritual journey at KidStep!


CORE Student Ministries

CORE is a place for high school and middle school students to connect with one another, with older mentors, and with Jesus. Our desire is to help students become disciple-makers and to walk alongside both them and their parents in their faith journeys.

We meet on Sundays at 10:30 AM, with high school students in the Core Cafe and middle school in the auditorium. On Wednesdays during the school year, we meet at 6:45 PM. Both Sunday and Wednesday meeting times have a blend of games, community, small and large group teaching, and discipleship.

Support for those with special needs. Our special needs ministry is designed to support families and make sure you can come to church and worship together. Our KidStep ministry (birth to 5th grade) has a specially designed sensory room as well as offers a “buddy” to attend Sunday School classes with your child.

CORE (6th to 12th grade) offers a similar program but at the 10:30 AM service only.

At this time, both the KidStep and CORE special needs programs are full.

Developmentally disabled adults are invited to join King’s Corps. They meet every Sunday at 10:30 AM in room 10. Monthly socials for King’s Corps participants occur throughout the academic year.

We have sign language for deaf worshippers during the 9 AM worship service. Ushers will be glad to seat you in the front, right-side section of the sanctuary nearest the interpreter.
