Us In A Nutshell

We’re real people with real problems and real hope. None of us are perfect, and we believe we’re at our best when we do life with people. 

It’s all about being the Church — not doing churchy things.

We believe that…

  • The real Jesus is really attractive
  • All people need to be loved and accepted
  • Real peace and joy are possible when we allow Jesus into our lives
  • Jesus Christ loves and values everybody everywhere
  • Everyone needs Jesus
  • Jesus can save anyone 
  • The Holy Spirit is responsible for conviction — we’re not here to judge

We love God, and we love people. And we’d be thrilled to see you here.

What to Expect



Yes! A greeter will smile and wave you in at the door. We’ve created a touch-free environment for the foreseeable future, so everything’s set up to keep you safe. If you have kids, someone will be at the door to show you how to check them into their classrooms.


Just bring yourself! We study the Bible, so you might want to bring a pad and paper, a Bible, or a device that will allow you to follow along and take notes. Also, we’re friendly to caffeine-addicts (we are mostly caffeine-addicts ourselves), so bring a coffee, tea, or even a snack.


We dress pretty casually around here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put on your Sunday best, either! Come as you are. Wear what feels most comfortable to you.
