who we are

//multi-site ministry

We are ONE church with TWO locations.

Multi-site ministry is like a family with more than one vehicle. When the family gets large enough or complex enough, it needs more than one car to get around. That is very much like our situation in multi-site ministry.

Having two locations allows us to have the best of two worlds. We have a "traditional" setting and a "contemporary" one. Each offers a place where people can encounter God through worship and study and serving others.

Our DOWNTOWN facility is a beautiful vintage setting circa 1888. With a Romanesque architecture and colorful stained glass windows it continues to offer a warm and inviting atmosphere for worship, study and service to others in the name of Jesus. Each week we have worship at 10:50 in that location. Through the week it is home to scouting ministries, community help ministries and special groups to help individuals who struggle with addiction. Throughout the year we have numerous weddings, special services and community gatherings hosted there.

Our south campus, CELEBRATION CENTER, is a contemporary setting for worship and ministry. Located on 32nd street, this facility offers a place for multiple worship gatherings, classes and community events. Our offices are located there along with a coffee house, bookstore, theater, woodworking shop, design studio, wellness center and recording studio. These creative spaces serve the purpose of translating and reinforcing the idea that our walk with God permeates all aspects of our life--it's not just a Sunday thing.

It never has been about buildings but about building lives. These locations (vehicles) continue to help us house ministries to impact lives for the kingdom of God. And from there, reach out into our neighborhoods and beyond.
