What is a Sunday Service like?
The Sunday service is a time when our whole church family gathers to worship together through song and hear a sermon from the pastor. We pray and take an offering (but as our guest don’t feel obligated to give the church money). The coffee bar is open before church service from 9-9:30am and there are light snacks served as well. First time visitors, please have a coffee, tea or smoothie on us!
What is the preaching like?
Pastor Thom Turner
Thom’s public speaking experience coupled with seminary training has produced a Bible teacher with wonderful wit, warmth and realism. He was adjunct faculty of Bethel Seminary and San Diego Christian College for 5 years and was a founding board member of Young Roots Oregon. He has taught on, ‘Hope For the Journey’ radio broadcast for 3 years.
Thom employs primarily 3 styles of preaching: verse by verse, narrative style and topical style at times. Not only has he been warmly received at camps and conferences but he enjoys the openness and tranparency of preaching in the local church.
Pastor Dave Galceran
My hope as I preach and teach is to stay close in context with God’s word and use stories and illustrations to amplify the text. If folks go away from these times learning a nugget or two I believe I’ve communicated something that God has taught me through the study time of that given passage.
Pastor Nick Wong

Where do my kids go?
If you’re new, please stop by the Children’s Ministry Welcome desk located in the lobby as you first come in the church. There you will meet one of our dedication Children’s Ministry staff and they will direct you to the appropriate classes and introduce you to the teachers.
All of our volunteers and teachers are background checked and attend annual trainings.
We have a 2 room set up for your babies/toddlers.
In one room, we have loving volunteers ready to care for and play with your babies/toddlers. Feel free to sign your child in and if your babies/toddlers needs you during service we will text you or send a runner to get you.
In the other room, we have a private nursing area, rocking chairs, toys, and a tv that streams our services live. This is a great place to watch our service while caring for your babies/toddlers.
In the preschool room, our caring volunteers are ready to teach your little one Bible stories through story time, crafts, and song. Your little one will have plenty of time to socialize through free play before and after their lessons. There will also be a light snack provided.
In the K1 room, we have engaged and fun volunteers ready to teach your kiddo Bible stories through story time, crafts, and song. Your kiddo will have plenty of time to socialize through free play before and after their lessons. There will also be a light snack provided.
