Our live, on-campus services are moving to Sunday evenings! With the onset of warmer summer weather, this weekend we’re shifting our on-campus services to the evening. See Pastor Jose Rose’s video message for more details about this change.

Sunday On-Campus Services Update

Our services on-campus this weekend will be as follows:

  • Our Spanish service will be held at 6pm in the Courtyard.
  • Our English service will begin at 7pm on the Field(Those attending the Spanish service are welcome to join the service on the field for more worship.)

Both services will be outdoors, so please bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket, and don’t forget to wear your face mask per current county guidelines, and as an act of love to others. We also recommend bringing a water bottle. Pre-registration will not be taken. Please note: Due to changing guidelines, our on-campus services and locations are subject to change on short notice. We appreciate your prayers and flexibility as we continue to work within the current, recommended health guidelines!
