Good Friday Service


Why is this day called Good Friday?  Well without this there wouldn't be Easter and our salvation. Join us at noon for a short service in which we acknowledge the sacrifice that Jesus made for our sin. 


Today's Special: Snake-Kobobs 03/11/2018 Message

For most of us, snakes do not make good meals – or pets, or livestock or just about anything else. So why would Jesus describe himself as a snake on a stick? This Sunday we will discover how facing our fears and brokenness can bring us hope through the one who came to lead us to new life.

03/04/2018 When Is It OKay to Trash a Temple

Is there a little vandal in you? Someone who likes to disrupt things? Well, before you reach for the spray paint or a fire extinguisher; check us out this Sunday as we discover how sometimes a little disruption in our lives can result in the emergence of something new and exciting.

Exodus 20:1-7, John 2:17-33

Off-Season Rates 02/18/2018

Everybody wants to get away once and a while. But sometimes a journey can take us to a place we’d rather not go. This Sunday, as Lent begins, we we’ll walk with Jesus as he travels a difficult road so that we can experience the grace and hope of a loving God.

You've Got a Better Idea?! 02/11/2018

Sometimes we just get stuck. We know that something isn’t right, but we either don’t know what to do about it or fear that our decision will be wrong. This Sunday, we will discover how, even when things are beyond our control, nothing is beyond the control of God.

02/04/2018 Ratings Through the Roof!

We are told that popularity is everything; that if enough people like something or believe in something then it must be right. But what if God calls us in a different direction? This Sunday, we will learn the difference between being popular and being faithful.

01/28/2018 Cheeseburger In Paradise

Depending on whom you ask, a cheeseburger is either a food of paradise or one that will send us there sooner. But is there really a spiritual component to what we eat – or what we say, or do? This Sunday, we will discover the power we have to change lives, simply by who we are.


Big Fish Stories 01-21-2018


You’ve heard about the one who got away. But this story is about anything but bragging rights. This Sunday, we will hear about God’s love and grace for everyone (including us), and how we are expected to make that message real in the world around us.


01-14-2018 You Talkin' To Me?


Let’s face it; there are a lot of voices out there with all kinds of messages for our lives. But how do we distinguish the voice of God in the midst of all of the noise? This Sunday, we will listen with hope and trust for our call to make a difference in the Good News of Jesus.


01-07-2018 Still Searching?

Perhaps it has been a while since strangers showed up at your door with chests of gold and perfume. Well, while they’re still searching for you – remember that we are also on a search. This Sunday, we will seek out the source of joy, and hope, and redemption; which can show up in some rather unexpected places.
