Because our lives have been changed by the hope of Jesus Christ, we gather each Saturday evening to express our heartfelt gratitude and love for our Savior. We call this our Worship Experience and it is the highlight of our week. Our Saturday gathering provides the space where we can grow in our relationships to God and one another by worshiping Him together and learning from His Word.
Our Saturday Experience begins at 6:00 p.m., lasts 1 hour & 15 minutes, and consists of several elements.
When you arrive you will be greeted by one of our Connections Hosts. The Hosts will help you navigate your first-time visit. Arrive early to enjoy coffee and refreshments in our Hope Cafe. We have safe, clean, and fun environments designed specifically for Children. These environments open for check-in 15 minutes prior to the start of our service.
We design our Saturday experience with you in mind. You can expect a welcoming atmosphere and a worship experience that displays both joy and good news. We follow a basic liturgy that can be traced back to the early Church: prayer, Scripture reading, songs of praise, and a relevant message from God’s Word. We also regularly practice communion and baptism as new Jesus followers are added to the church.
Music has always been a powerful part of the ancient Christian faith. An important part of every service is dedicated to singing the foundational truths of the Christian faith in a modern way. Over the first 20 minutes of our experience you will hear encouraging songs focused on God and our relationship with Him.
We believe the Bible contains the wisdom of God and is worthy of learning and applying. We believe a message from the God's Word should be hopeful and helpful for every day, so we dedicate 25-30 minutes of our gathering to teaching from the Bible.
