What if I’m not sure about Christianity or even the Catholic Church?
Perfect. You can explore faith at your own pace. "Starting Point": an experience to explore faith in a conversational setting with others.

I am not sure if I am ready to come to Mass, but want to start just with a place to pray?

We have that covered too... check out our Adoration Chapel as a place to start and then come join us on Sunday

Another great way to "get to know us" is through our Tuesday Night Together evenings, they traditionally happen in October and February. They are a great way to get answers to life's questions, meet people and sense the spirit of welcome and hospitality for which our Family of Faith has become known for.

 

What to know for your first time here

Where should I go when I get there?
We’ll show you where to go. Our parking team will guide you to a parking spot on our lot. Just follow the smiling faces in the bright vests. Our greeting team will meet you at the door and show you where to find the church, restrooms, and children’s programs. If you need anything throughout the day, feel free to stop by the Welcome Desk. We’re here to serve!

What do you do for kids?
We love kids and want them to hear about God on their own level. Our
Children’s Ministry   programs are safe, age-appropriate environments where kids have their own service with singing, a Bible lesson, and small group time. Children Ages 2 & 3 check-in beforehand and attend Kids Zone during the entire Mass. Children in JK - Grade 4 attend Mass with their parents and are invited to step out during the readings and homily for our high-energy program where we use sight and sound in a creative way to make His word come alive.

What can I expect at Mass?
We’re a Catholic church, so if you have ever been to Mass before you’ll recognize the liturgy and prayers. You may notice we do a few things differently as well. We have contemporary feel, featuring  praise and worship songs and hymns that have been sung for centuries. When it comes to the homily, our messages are offered as a part of a series. We take a topic or theme and walk together through it for a few weeks. If you want to see what we are talking about right now, check out our current series

What else do I need to know?
Everyone is welcome! Regardless of your beliefs or background, everyone who comes on our campus is an honored guest. We’re here for you. And don’t feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.
