We’re glad you’ve stopped by! It can be unsettling to walk into a new place with new people. Here is some information that may make your first visit more comfortable for you and your family. We are excited to meet you!

What is Worship Like?

Each worship service is a unique experience.

The Sanctuary offers traditional worship at 8:30am and a mix of traditional and contemporary at 9:45am.

Warehouse 839
 offers modern (light rock) worship at 11am with a multi-generational band.

Our Lead Pastor is April Blaine. Our Executive Pastor is Karen Muntzing.

What to Wear
Come as you are! In this house we welcome suits and ties, dresses, jeans, and cut-offs… tee shirts, flip-flops, wingtips, and heels… We welcome big hair, no hair, blue hair, and unruly hair… tattoos, piercings, and Grandma’s pearls…

Parking
We have a large parking lot with many spaces close to the buildings. We suggest arriving 10-15 minutes before worship for parking, connecting with the hospitality center (if you wish), grabbing a cup of coffee and a pastry, and finding a seat.

There’s an ADA-approved entrance under the portico at the Social Hall doors to the Sanctuary building, where you can drop passengers off. At Warehouse 839, there’s ADA parking and an ADA ramp right by the front door.

Hospitality Center
Just inside the entrance to each building are friendly people who are ready to answer your questions, give you printed information, and direct you or take you to various places in the church, if you like.

Children

We have a great, kid-friendly nursery with well-trained staff who’ve passed a background check.

We have amazing children’s Sunday school, which we call KidJAM, at 9:45am in The Sanctuary and at 11am in Warehouse 839.
