Our Mission

We exist for one simple reason: Love God. Love People.

That's it. It's that simple. And that's because it's the command Jesus gives us in Luke 10:27, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, love your neighbor as yourself" (NIV).

Our Services

We offer a variety of opportunities for you to join us throughout the week as we focus on growing closer to Christ through fellowship and worship. We want to help you connect to Jesus, so our services are designed to bring you closer to Him.

On Sundays, we hold two main services:

  • 9:30 a.m. - This is our traditional service which includes worship with hymns and a time of teaching through message. During this time, we also offer a mixture of Sunday School classes for all age ranges, from newborns to adults. 
  • 10:45 a.m. - This service offers a more contemporary worship experience that uses a variety of instruments, media and teaching. Our children's programs are available throughout the service, as well. 

On Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m., we invite you to join us for small group adult Bible studies. Our children's and youth programs also are available during these times for all ages, from newborns through high school. The youth program for grades 7th through 12th meet in the Youth Center starting at 7 p.m.

Throughout the Week
One of our goals as Christians is to continue to grow in our faith and become disciples of Christ, seeking to follow Him in every way. Our growth group Bible studies meet throughout the week at various times to offer you the chance to get involved with a group that fits within your busy schedule. To get involved in one of these groups, we encourage you to contact us at or call us at 423-844-1080. We can get you connected to a group that fits you. Find out more.
