It is no accident you are here! God has led you to explore this church. That is awesome!

If you are looking for peace in your life right now, know that many have come to this church and met God here and found it. You may see the Christians here and wonder how to have what they have. 

If you are looking for a church home, but have not yet found one, look no further. You've come home. You're next step is to simply begin worshiping and serving with your new family.

Come visit us… we’ll be expecting you and look forward to journeying with you.

Warmly, 
John Fullerton 
Lead Pastor

What to Expect

We want you to feel right at home when you visit. We know what’s it’s like to visit a new place with people you haven’t met. In order to make this the best possible experience for you, we want you to know what to expect. We will go out of our way to:

Be clear about Jesus.

Present as clear a picture as we can of the positive, hopeful, life-changing message of Jesus Christ Make sure you feel welcome. Our commitment is to make sure you feel accepted, valued and never judged. 

Make what you wear a non-issue.

You will be dressed perfectly. Jesus cares about you, not your clothes. We feel the same way. Let you be anonymous We won’t single you out or make you feel awkward. We’ll introduce ourselves, but not be pushy.

Talk in words that make sense.

We won’t talk in “Bible talk” (thee, thou…) and if we use special words, we’ll carefully explain them.

Not pressure you to give NO guilt.

Believe it or not, we don’t care whether you give money. You are our welcome guest today.

Take care of your children.

We are as nuts about the safety and care of your children as we are about Jesus.

Love you.

God loves you and because of that you will be loved here.

Nursery and Childcare

NURSERY AND CHILDCARE

When you drop off your child with our staff, your child will be safe, they will learn about Jesus and they will have a great time. Leaving your little one for the first time can be stressful for both the child and the parent. Please feel free to stay and play until your child is comfortable. Our commitment to excellence flows from our commitment to give God our very best in every area of ministry.

Children who are three years old or younger are supervised in our church nursery by professional child care staff and learn that church is a happy and safe place where they are loved because God is love.

All nursery staff are subject to background checks and are required to attend our Safety and Risk Management workshop. This workshop includes safety training as well as fingerprinting and police background checks. At least one caregiver present is certified in Infant CPR and first aid. When you leave your child in the nursery, be assured that your child's care and comfort is of the utmost priority. You will be given a pager so that you can be contacted if necessary.

Our caregivers also provide childcare for older elementary age children during meetings and activities for adults.

For more information about the nursery and childcare, email us or call the church office at (727) 734-5493.
