Experience Jesus. Live Like Him.



The Shift is our Sunday evening service at 6:00 PM.
This is a different worship service than our Sunday Morning ones and will have its own sermon series and worship team. The Shift is a dynamic community of people with a passion for powerful music, practical messages that can be applied to real life, and extended ministry time afterwards. We believe in being a place where people can experience God in community. Come be a part of The Shift.

God blesses us when we come together, seek Him and walk in faith.

Lead Pastor Bob Ona

We believe in being a place where people come to experience God in community. We believe in equipping people with practical biblical teaching, helping them find their unique area of serving and matching them to a Group where they can grow and be made whole in the closeness of community and the love of Christ. This is how we live life.
