Love and Connection
We are a place that is serious about love, true love, the kind of love that comes from real connection with God and others. A heartfelt greeting is part of what makes a church a church. No matter what question you might have, just ask. Our greeters are there to help you get settled and comfortable. We are casual atmosphere where friendships can form and relationships deepen.
 
Worship
One of the ways to express worship to God is through music.  We love music, all kinds of music. From hymns to contemporary tunes, we use music to honor God and to express our love towards Him.  We invite you to participate by joining in.  If you don’t know the words to the songs, don’t worry, we post the lyrics on the wall just for you. 
 
Conversation and Relevant Messages
Expect to be noticed. Expect people to say something like, “Hi, we haven’t met before, is this your first time?” Expect for people to reach out to you in love.  When it comes to the sermons and Bible lessons we receive, don’t be surprised when you find yourself laughing and learning at the same time!  Our ministry team is gifted in providing scripture based practical and relevant teaching that addresses the realities of modern life in an open and loving manner.

I Have Been Given 7…Why the Word

I Have Been Given 7.....Why the Word?

As the "I Have Been Given" series continues, we ask ourselves the question,"why the Word?" In today's message, Pastor Derry ministers seven reasons that Christians should build their lives on the Word. This message is significantly important in this season, where the people say that they are searching for "truth", but in practice really are looking for someone to validate how they feel. The Word is our source of truth, and the church must be ready to be "excellent" in our stewardship of the Word of God.

As we prepare to eat, we will pray in public and in private covering all who are present at our place as wel …

Thanksgiving: More Than a Holiday, A State of Being

As we prepare for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, marked by Thanksgiving, I want to take a moment to reflect on what the Bible says about it. As the title of this piece indicates, thanksgiving is far more than a holiday, it is a state of being. Not only does it reflect what we are thinking and feeling in any given moment, it is the precursor to peace according to Philippians …
