Where To Begin

NEXT is your first step to get connected.

NEXT for newcomers

Perhaps it's been years since you've been to church. Or you're new to the area and are looking for a church. Maybe you've never been a part of a church community and are curious.

Wherever you're coming from, we're glad you're here!

If you're new to ENCOUNTER and wondering where to go next, join us for a 15-minute overview about what's happening around here. It's an informal gathering called NEXT happening on the 3rd weekend each month after each service. Learn more about our values and vision, meet some of our staff, as well as other new people. 

NEXT happens on the 3rd weekend following the service, Saturday at 7:15 pm, Sunday at 10:15 am, or 12 pm, in the Living Room, which is located off the main patio.

Please text our Children's Team, (805) 901-0160, if you need extended childcare while attending the class; include your child’s first/last name, and age/grade, so we can alert your child’s teacher. 

Learn more about what we believe here.

We look forward to meeting you! Contact
