A progressive community sharing the love of Jesus.

Disciples of Christ

You are welcome

We are a church of seniors to babies, college students to empty nesters.

Our worship is defined by our vibrant traditional style of music, our taking of communion each week and our warm conversation at fellowship time after the service.

Come belong to a community learning to be more human, intentional and striving for authenticity in all we do.

Sunday Services

Our weekly services have the right amount of consistency to feel at home and the right amount of variety to keep things interesting.

We have in-person worship services and kids programs every Sunday morning . We also livestream our services for those who aren't able to join in-person.

Join Us On Sunday

We're part of something bigger than ourselves


From Sunday services to opportunities for shared meals and fun gatherings, we prioritize serving and living life together.


We believe we are blessed to be a blessing. We partner with local and global organizations to serve people and spread the hope of Jesus around the world.
