Meet Your New Church Home!

A building is not a church, any more than a house is a home. A place becomes a home when people move into it, laugh together, cry together, live life together, and worship God together. We can’t wait for our building to become your new church home!

Worship Center

Can you hear the music and the messages? Our auditorium will be a place to experience God in transformational ways. We will sing together, pray together, worship together, and grow together. The worship center will hold baptisms and communions, it will be a place to sing new songs and old hymns, and it will wrap us in lots of laughter and perhaps a few tears.

Worship Center

The auditorium will comfortably seat up to 450 people, with room for neighbors and newcomers. To experience the expansiveness of God, we will raise the roof above the stage and half of the auditorium space. We have included the latest technology for audio, visual, and lighting to create an environment that engages both the heart and mind in an experience with God.

Lobby

On Sundays, the Lobby will be a busy place connecting all of our ministries together: a coffee area, kids check-in area, restrooms, and access to the nursing Moms’ room. The Lobby runs the entire length of the building from the front door to the back and will be an inviting environment for relational connections.

During the week, the Lobby will be available to facilitate open-air meetings of various sizes. Grab some coffee and meet up with friends, or find a comfy chair to sit and read or use the church’s wifi.

Next Gen Wing

The Next Generation wing will be a state-of-the-art space designed for kids to feel at home. Divided between Kids, Middle School, and High School ministries, the space will be where the younger generations gather for worship, learning, and fun. It will be where little kids hear stories of Noah and Ruth and Jesus for the first time and where middle school students make new friends. It will be where high school students form a community that helps them walk through tricky seasons and big questions.

Kids Area
As children enter our secure Kids Ministry space, they will feel transported to a whole new world, brimming with color, fun, and storybook walls so the Bible can come to life right before their eyes. This dedicated space will also be highly secure, assuring kids remain safe on campus. For added convenience and security, we’ve added designated kids restrooms in this Kids area. A secure and fun outdoor play area will be directly accessible from each Kids Ministry classroom to facilitate playtime together.
Students Area
On Sundays, our Next Gen space will be used for our Middle School Student services, where students will hear songs and sermons that help them form the foundation of their faith. For High School students, there will be a space to gather and grab a bite to eat together before joining the main worship services. Throughout the week, this space will be used for student small group experiences. This space will create community, train leaders, and create transformational moments for students to encounter our living God.
Flexibility
To maximize our impact on the Kingdom of God, we are making our new home flexible. The two large Middle and High School meeting rooms will be used midweek. The auditorium can also be used on weekdays and will be curtained off to accommodate smaller group sizes in a more intimate setting. The auditorium will be technology-enabled to facilitate three concurrent meetings. A conference room behind the stage can be available for meetings throughout the week. The lobby will be reconfigurable with seating areas and visual screens to facilitate concurrent smaller group meetings.
A Community Resource
Meeting space in the Tri-Valley is in short supply. It’s even more challenging for local non-profits and ministries with few resources to rent the more expensive commercial meeting space. As we invest in our community, our building will be available for other kingdom-oriented organizations.
