Announcements
  • Sunday Worship

  • SERVANTS NEED WEDNESDAY

    Unpaid servants who are Ministry-Safe trained are needed in the Children's Ministry department every Wednesday evening from 6-8pm. The response for adult Bible studies has been overwhelmingly positive and, as a result, we have a greater number of children and students in our care. If you are willing to help nurture and teach these young people, please contact Dana Gomez (817-487-2400) or Jennifer Higgins (817-690-2720).  


  • ESL & GED NEEDS YOU

    Adult Education classes are back in session and unpaid servants are always welcome to help greet and serve students and their families. If you are looking for a place to live our mission - to love God, grow in grace, and serve others - this is a great opportunity!


  • PASSIONATE DISCIPLES SUMMIT

    Church staff, ministry team leaders, and unpaid servants are invited to our annual PASSIONATE DISCIPLES SUMMIT Saturday, January 27 for a day of celebrating the past and preparing for the future. We will begin promptly at 9:30am in the Gym. Captain Marshall Whitlock from Johnson County Sheriff's Office will present a safety and emergency preparedness seminar prior to our church business and visioning conversations. Lunch and childcare will be provided, please RSVP to Nicole Hutchison or Pastor Dale Wilbanks by phone or email. 


  • ADULT BIBLE STUDIES

    Midweek discipleship groups for children and teens plus adult Bible studies take place every Wednesday at 6:30pm in the Education Building. Skip the hassle of rushing home to make dinner and join us for our Midweek Meal at 5:30pm in the Gym.

Who We Are

We are a growing congregation, a place where you can authentically connect with others who are exploring what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We are young and old. We are left and right. We are contemporary, traditional, and blended. We believe our differences enrich the experience of community as we learn from one another. We are united by our commitment to work, play, and worship together as we answer the call to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Come experience the congregation that shares the message of hope and grace - and offers to all a place to belong.
