About Us



We open our morning gatherings with a call to worship as we enter into a time of corporate worship. During our time together, we highlight the ways we are seeking to be a Jesus-formed community on mission, open the Bible together for the reading of Scripture for the teaching of God's Word from a member of our teaching team. Each week, we end in coming to the table for a time of communion as a weekly call to abide in Jesus, to recalibrate—to center our lives, our minds, and our purposes on Jesus.
