FAQs


What is the one thing I should know about Real Life?

We want our church to be a group of people who experience real life together. Sometimes the church experience can be intimidating, but we make it our priority to make you and your family feel at home. No one is perfect, and we’re no different. We’re just all saved by the redeeming love of Jesus Christ.


What are your core beliefs?

Our core beliefs rest on the bible. There is only one true living God, who is revealed as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Salvation has been provided to all mankind through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This salvation is marked with Baptism by immersion. For more about our beliefs, check out the “beliefs” page under the info tab.


What should I wear?

We are a casual church! Our motto is to come as you are, and that includes wearing whatever makes you most comfortable.


What times are

the services?

We have two identical Contemporary services at either 9:00 or 10:45 every Sunday.


What about my kids?

Our children’s ministry is K-5th, and places an emphasis on learning the Bible in a fun, captivating way. We also have a fully staffed security team to ensure the safety of your children. All of our teacher volunteers must go through a rigorous screening and background check so that you can know your children are safe. We also offer childcare for children that are not yet in Kindergarten.


What about my teenagers?

Our student ministry, which we call Grindstone, covers students from 6th-12th grade. We offer Wednesday night programming at our North Campus building offering messages geared for young adults, small groups to grow with peers, and a fun environment that’s safe to mature in. We also meet on Sunday mornings during the 9:00 service.
