How do I get Started?

Grow & Serve Center
Stop by the Grow & Serve Center on Sunday morning. You’ll meet some friendly people who can help you get connected to current serving opportunities, register for classes, and answer any questions you may have. Meet new friends, serve others, and grow in your faith as a result!

Backstage Pass
Join us for a fun tour of our church facilities on a Sunday morning and see ministry in action. We’ll not only help you find your way around the building, but will help you gain insight as to how people are serving God and others across the church, and how you can become a part of it all! The Backstage Pass Tour begins at 10:45 on the date specified in the green “Backstage Pass” box, and lasts for about 45 minutes. Families are welcome to attend together; no sign ups required.

SHAPE Workshop
Discover where God has uniquely gifted you to serve. Did you know that you are God’s Masterpiece? That you were created to make a unique contribution to His kingdom? Join us for SHAPE, and explore your own special combination of spiritual gifts, heart (passions), abilities, personality and experiences. After completing the workshop, you’ll meet 1:1 with a SHAPE Guide who will help you find a place to serve that produces joy, satisfaction, and continued growth in Christ.
