Dress code

Our dress code is…. Just wear clothes!
We like for you to be comfortable, so you can wear what makes you feel comfortable. Some wear shorts, some wear pants, some wear shirts and some wear hoodies, and some dress up.


All our messages are from the Bible, delivered in a manner that is applicable to everyday life, however some will be more practical than others. The thing that never changes will be the centrality of the Bible, the Word of God, because through it we meet Jesus and are empowered by His Spirit. It is in Him, through the working of the Holy Spirit, that we learn how to be better people, have better marriages, and be more fulfilled in life.
