Is life sucking the joy out of you?

Let’s be real – sometimes you don’t enjoy life. If you are transparent, maybe you’ve even given up on the idea of life being joyful, and it takes everything to survive. It’s not that you don’t want to enjoy life; it just seems like there’s always something primed and ready to pop that balloon.

Or maybe, you find yourself continually chasing the next big thing, hoping that that thing, person, or position will finally usher in the life you’ve been desiring.

Either way, enjoying life to its fullest seems like a fantasy – unreachable and impossible.

But what if God has another way? What if Jesus promised a life that was meant to be full of enjoyment and vitality? Would you be willing to try things His way?

If you are tired and worn out from chasing dead ends and spending all your energy just trying to survive each day, you need to know there’s a better way. A life of joy. A life of promise. A life of greater meaning and fulfillment.

The fact is, Jesus is rooting for you and has a life of abundance waiting if you’ll be willing to let Him be your Shepherd and do life His way. It may mean making changes. It might mean learning to see every day from a different perspective. And it certainly won’t be instantaneous because this is a life-long journey. But it’s possible.

Join us this Sunday as we continue our “I am Jesus” series and unpack the powerful statement of Jesus that promises He can be our Good Shepherd and offers a new and better way of doing life. I think you’ll be glad you did!

Join us in person or online at 9:15 or 11:15 on Sunday morning, and invite a friend or two to come with you or watch along. God wants their lives to be better and different too!



Yeah, we know how important a good-tasting cup of java is. Before and after each worship experience, we serve high-quality, environmentally-friendly coffees, and beverages that are both free and taste good! And get this – you are welcome to bring them with you into the worship experience! So, come a little early and grab a beverage before the fun begins.


Don’t be surprised if you see clips from your favorite movies or television shows, hear a personal story from a person just like you. You’ll always find something unexpected like crowd interaction, comedy, clever object lessons or creative lighting, effects and media because we believe church should be fun to attend and be engaging!


We think you deserve content that is interesting and engaging. In fact, it should be so practical that you could put it to use even before you leave the building. We learn about things like relationships, work, and careers, finances, power over addictions, forgiveness, life change through Jesus. And yes…even sex! Every week our “talks” are creative, down to earth, funny and memorable and they’ll make a real difference in your life.


Your kids and teenagers will also discover stuff that applies to their everyday lives. Creative videos, music they love and they’ll meet real people who care and want to help them find their way through life with God and one another. And there’s even a safe & caring nursery for the littlest ones because we want you to be able to enjoy the morning distraction free and we want them to learn the church can be fun for them as well!


Our live band plays a mix of high-energy pop, rock, r&b, hip-hop & gospel as well as reflective tunes that you’ll want to hum all week long. Here’s the best part – our bands sound like music that was written for today! And get this – many weeks they even cover a tune you just heard on the radio by one of your favorite artists! That’s because good music matters and helps to get you thinking about the topic of the day.


We don’t have a dress code. We don’t speak in holy jargon that only Christians understand. We don’t expect anyone to be perfect. We’re just ordinary people just like you, warts and all. Authenticity is a big deal to us – it’s exhausting to keep trying to pretend we’ve always got our act together when we don’t. So come and be yourself – no matter what you look like or where you’re from you’ll find other fellow-strugglers just like you.

 Casual. Contemporary.  Family-friendly. Creative. Relevant. Life-changing.
