Church MapFinding Your Way Around

When you enter through the main church doors you will be greeted by volunteers who can point you in all the right directions.  In case someone is not there to greet you, click on the facility map on the left side.  This map shows you where to drop off your children and where the worship center is located.

Parking

There’s plenty of available parking at the church facility.  Just look for the signs for the church and find a spot.

Children

Before our worship service, we offer a number of classes for adults and children. We call this our Gospel Foundation School – as we learn together the truths of God’s Word upon which we build our lives. Classes for children are divided by age and taught by a team of caring volunteers. The church map or one of our Sunday morning volunteers can help you to find the proper class for your child.

During our 10:30 worship service, child care is available for newborns up to 3 years old. Refer to the church map or a greeter for the check in location. Children are welcome and encouraged to participate in our worship service, sing along with our songs and listen to the sermon. For children ages 3-5, we offer a program of Scriptural instruction and activity called Kids Quest during the sermon. Kids Quest participants are usually dismissed from the service just before the sermon. Parents can pick up their children from the Kids Quest room at the conclusion of the service.

What To Wear and Expect

Come as you are. We are a pretty casual church. You’ll see people in jeans, shorts and occasionally ties. Our worship service is an accessible mix of contemporary songs, traditional hymns, corporate prayer, Scripture readings, and Gospel-centered sermons. In all things, we seek to honor the name of Jesus Christ and make Him known. You can also expect to feel welcomed by friendly church members who can answer any questions you may have.


 

What We Believe

We like to identify ourselves as a new church with ancient faith. But, what exactly do we mean by that?

Although we are a relatively “new” church (planted in 2001), we are not new in our beliefs. We are in the stream of the historic Christian church from centuries past and hold to all the vintage creeds of the universal church (e.g. Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed).

We are committed to the system of doctrine summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith along with the Shorter and Larger Catechisms (est.1648). We are proud to be united with the Presbyterian Church in America. We readily acknowledge the wider family of God and appreciate the work of God’s Spirit in traditions other than our own. While we gladly stand unified with other Christ-worshiping and gospel-believing (evangelical) churches, we are not fundamentalist (truth-without-grace) nor liberal (grace-without-truth).
