At ENCOUNTER, we keep things simple. People matter to us, no matter what age or background. We love learning more about God and His purposes for our lives. And everything we do is a warm reminder of God’s unconditional love and acceptance.
It can be daunting coming to church for the first time. We want to make your visit as simple and enjoyable as possible. Our weekend service is designed to help you draw closer to Jesus. We hope you will walk away feeling encouraged, challenged, and knowing God’s love for you.

Scripture References: Matthew 5:1-11
Following Jesus. What does that mean? And where is He leading us? Matthew was a guy most people didn’t like, but a guy most people could identify with. He was a crook, of sorts, but also had a band of surly friends he hung out with. They liked the fact that his crooked money trickled down into house parties where they were invited. Then one day Jesus rocked Matt’s world. In fact, he invited himself over to hang out with Matthew’s friends. That’s just how Jesus was. So begins Matthew’s journey as a follower of this Rabbi. At God’s own direction, Matthew penned one of the four Gospel accounts of Christ’s life. We have it preserved as the very first book in our New Testament Scriptures. We’re listening in on what Jesus taught. We’re gaining a fresh vision for the Kingdom He’s inviting us into. We’re learning what it looks like to walk in “The Way of Jesus.” Weekends at ENCOUNTER.
