Home Churches

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.
Home churches create an environment where people can grow closer to one another and closer to God in order to live life in Christ and impact His Kingdom. Home churches typically gather every other week, with breaks during the holidays. At a home church gathering, we will eat, grow, and pray together as we develop a practical and meaningful relationship with God.
The Foundation
The earliest Christians gathered in homes to pray and share their stories about Jesus.
“Greet Prisca and Aquila, my co-workers in Christ Jesus…greet also the church at their house.” -Romans 16:3,5
Often small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve people.
