We know that it can be intimidating coming to a new church and that building relationships take time. We have found the following steps helpful in becoming a part of our church community:
1. INTRODUCE YOURSELF AT OUR SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES
We currently offer one service at 10am where you can join us for a time of worship, bible teaching, & prayer. We would love to get to meet you and give you a small gift for joining us! Just fill out a connect card and drop it off at our Connect Desk after the service. This will give us a chance to meet you as well as give you information about our church and how you can get connected. Dress is casual and the service lasts for about an hour.
2. JOIN OUR DISCOVERY CLASS
A few times a year we host a 4-week class for our newcomers. The class takes place in our main foyer after our 11am Sunday morning service and lasts just over an hour. You will have an opportunity to hear one another’s stories, Emmanuel’s story, and learn about next steps towards connecting at the church. Contact the church office to find out when our next Discovery Class will be happening.
3. BE A PART OF A LIFE GROUP
We think that one of the best ways to be part of a community, find friendship, and grow in your relationship with God is through being a part of a home group. You can discover and sign up to some of the different groups that are open here, or chat with one of our pastors for the most recent list of groups.

4. SERVE IN A MINISTRY
We want everyone to have an opportunity to serve through using their giftings and passions to make a difference in the lives of others. Click here to find out where you might be able to get involved in helping others.
5. JOIN OUR NEW CHRISTIAN CLASS
Perhaps you’ve recently decided to become a Christ-follower. Or perhaps you’re just “kicking the tires”. Either way, we have a very safe, non-threatening and open environment where anyone can explore, learn and discover the basics of the Christian faith. Contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out when this class begins.
