Each of our three ENCOUNTER church services has the same speaker and worship team for that weekend, and there are programs for kids at each service.

When you arrive, there are people wearing “host” badges to help you find your way and show you around.

Our ENCOUNTER service starts with singing some songs of worship led by a team of musicians. There is a brief welcome and update about what’s happening. The pastor will give a relevant, Bible-based talk. We end by singing together. The whole service lasts an hour and 15 minutes.

After ENCOUNTER, hang out and enjoy a cup of coffee on our patio. We look forward to meeting you!



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, Saturdays at 7:15 pm, Sundays at 10:15 am, or 12 pm, in the Living Room, which is located off the main patio.
