Why did we do it? Why did we build all this? We needed more empty seats to fill! As we start to use this new space, let's pray for empty seats to be filled with people who want to take new steps closer to God. May God work among us in powerful ways!


  • 100 level numbers are found on the first floor
  • 200 level numbers are found on the second floor
  • Numbers progress in a circular clockwise direction around the first floor, beginning at the main office (#100), wrapping around behind the sanctuary, through the offices and library hallway, past the kitchen, around the west side of the building, and concluding with the nursery rooms near the front entrance.

How did we get here? Where are we going?

April 23, 2017

A living room with a fireplace sounds comfy, but God's call stretches us and moves us beyond our comfort zones. Last Sunday, using images of fireplaces and campfires, Pastor Steve offered challenges about how we can live out our vision. He addressed questions such as:

  • How can we break down barriers between "insiders" and those who feel like outsiders?
  • How can we stop acting like "consumers" when it comes to church, and how can we look to serve and invest instead?
  • How have we been critical? And how can we contribute instead to the exciting ministry momentum we are experiencing?
  • How can we all invest in something so much bigger than we are?
To hear about this and more, listen to Pastor Steve's sermon from April 23:
