We like to say we are real, relational and relevant. These are the answers to the three biggest reasons that most people do not go to church. For those whose perception or experience of church has been that it isn’t real – that it’s full of hypocrites who act one way on Sunday and another the rest of the week . . . we say you will find people here who are honest about their hurts, habits and hang-ups. We are not perfect in any way, and we don’t pretend we are. We just love God and what He has done for us in Jesus Christ and want Him to help us through our problems. For those whose perception or experience has been that church is irrelevant . . . we say you won’t find that here. We address the concerns, questions and problems you face today. The messages often focus on issues of family, relationships, addictions, life’s biggest questions, etc. Chances are you will know several people who are already a part of the church family. And it is a family. This is a church where people from all walks of life come and feel that they belong. That’s the kind of welcoming atmosphere we strive to develop and keep, and it’s authentic. The diverse makeup of our church family is proof of that.
Started in November of 1994, the church began to meet at the Inn of Estes for a short time and then moved for about four years to the Masonic Lodge. The church purchased its first building in 1999. It was a 4900 square foot building that had been “Frank Lane’s Dance Ranch” since 1959 when it was built. This square dance building had all maple floors and was wide open, so it was perfect to remodel into an auditorium and classrooms. And we have even had some “swing dances” here to keep the floor happy. We moved into it in October of 1999. We also purchased an additional 5 acres adjoining to the east to add parking and leave room for future expansion. In 2002, we began to add a two story building on the east side to accommodate a new kitchen, teaching area, offices and multi-use lower level. The church has seen steady growth every year since 1996. We focus on reaching out to those who have either never been to church or have not been to church in a long time for some reason.
Our worship services are on Sundays at 8:00 and 10:30am in person and online
Our in-person services are designed for all people, no matter what stage of faith they are in, to be able to worship God and learn more about him. During every service, we sing contemporary, God-centered worship songs and listen to a message containing Biblical truths which are applicable to your life situation. There will be a Connection Card in your bulletin, which we’d love for you to fill out. We will use this information to get to know you better and help you find ways to get involved. We also recognize the sacrifices of Jesus each week by observing Communion. If you are a believer of Christ, you are welcome to participate in Communion. We pass the elements and take them individually. Our offering baskets are passed at the end of the worship service. While we don’t expect our guests to participate in the offering, you can place your Connection Card in the basket
