I’m Going Last!

This past January through May, our average Sunday morning attendance was 1,700! That’s up 400 people from the previous year.

As we continue to steward and maximize the capacity of our building and parking lot, we are adding a fourth service at 12:30pm every Sunday beginning August 11!

Many of our visitors, families, and college students attend second and third services, and many Sundays seats and parking spaces run out! We have had up to 100 people in our Lower Auditorium overflow worship space when there are no seats left in the Sanctuary. More than once, 10+ cars have come into the parking lot and left because they couldn’t find a place to park.

Would you prayerfully consider Going Last? We need a few hundred people to commit to Going Last and move to our new 12:30 service time so that we can welcome as many as possible to worship Jesus with us this August.

Please note that Nursery, Preschool, and Children’s Ministry will not be available during the 12:30 service. However, the nursing mom’s room with livestream feed will be available for use!

I’m Going First!

We are so grateful for the 200 people who have committed to attending first service at 8:15am each week! We would love to see attendance at this service double over the next year to help make room for visitors, families, and college students who attend our second and third services.

Nursery, Preschool, and Children’s Ministry through fourth grade meet during the 8:15 service!
