What To Expect

Thinking about attending one of our gatherings?

Here’s what you have to look forward to:

A PLACE TO BELONGWe welcome all people with open arms. Whether this is your first time to step foot in a church or you’ve been a part of a Christian community your whole life – you will be welcomed here with a smile, friendly handshake or even a hug (if you want one!).

A PLACE TO BELIEVEOur gatherings are simple in form: centered on God’s grace and driven by God’s word. From singing songs, to praying to God, to learning from God’s Word…we focus on what matters most in this life. Our prayer is that you will find a safe space to learn about, explore, and express what you believe about God.

A SAFE PLACE TO BRING YOUR KIDS. We believe that children are not just the future of the church, they ARE the church. From K to 12th grade, we offer programs tailor made for whatever age your young ones are. Pouring into the next generation(s) is something we are wholeheartedly passionate about. This is not childcare – this is a specific church gathering for our young people.

A PLACE TO ASK QUESTIONS. Our gatherings are a great entry point for someone who is seeking, skeptical, or curious. Doubt is not the absence of faith, it is a part of the substance of it. We all have questions – and you will find a safe space to explore, ask, and have those questions answered.

Early riser? Busy day? Join us at 9:00 AM for our early worship service.  We meet in the sanctuary for a more condensed worship experience with music and the Word.  Next, we have our small group study classes at 9:45 AM. We have classes for all ages and wonderful teachers that will help to encourage and help you grow in your Christian walk.  After small groups, we meet in the sanctuary at 11 AM for our morning Worship Celebration with music and the sharing of the Word. All of this can be live, streamed, or watched later from our main Facebook page! We LIVESTREAM each service as well as our small group lesson at 9:45 AM.

Worship on Wednesdays!


During the evening, students will be exposed to Bible study, worship, fellowship, recreational time, and a host of other activities!

WOW! also provides a Bible study for our adults (18 and over). Young, or young at heart; there is something for everyone on WOW night!
