IMPORTANT MOVE UPDATE  

In recent weeks, Pastor Brian shared some important updates about our upcoming move. Here are the highlights:

Our front desk reception area is no longer in the main staff office area. It is now in the Soul Care Center (in the Lobby). If you come by the church looking for our reception area, that's where you'll need to go.

The staff offices have been temporarily set up at our new location (not in the main building where construction is happening) -- they are in the adjacent building which we will use until our permanent offices are ready for us.

The Hub building on our campus is now closed. This is an important and exciting step for us as we prepare to move to our new campus! Here is how the Hub closure will impact us on weekends until we move:

ALL Kidsway classrooms will now meet in the main building. 

Middle school and high school students will be invited to join in the main service, or they will have opportunities to serve. If you are a parent or guardian of a middle school or high school student, please pay careful attention to the communication coming from our student ministry staff. They will have specific information for you about service opportunities and places for students to gather if they wish to sit together during services. 

Attend on Saturday if you can. Sundays will likely be quite crowded this month. We have more space on Saturdays, so if you are able to attend church on Saturday, we encourage you to do so. If you can only come on Sundays, please do so!

The Hub building will not be available as a passageway. If you park on the north side of the campus you will not be able to walk through the Hub building to get to the main building. If you walk around the Hub on the west side (Industrial Ave.) of the building the walk isn’t much longer than it would be if you cut through the building. 

We are getting really close to our move! With each passing weekend we are getting closer and closer to moving to our new home! Yes, things will be cozy this month, but just remember that the reason for that is we are preparing to step into a new building full of new opportunities for us to equip one another to bring the wholeness of Jesus to a broken world (and we’re saving A LOT of money). 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Pastor Brian Kiley on The City or email

PARKING TEAM INTEREST MEETING 

As we move to our new campus, we need to form a Parking Team to help with traffic flow as guests find their way around our campus. This is a great way to play a huge role in making sure we make a great first impression on everyone who worships with us. If you're interested in joining this new team please join us for a brief info meeting. Our Parking Team will be a part of our Campus Guides ministry.

Likewise, if you would like to have someone you can come to for Biblically based guidance with life’s circumstances, or for help in furthering your spiritual walk, you might consider requesting a mentor.
