our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God

our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves

our hope is that the best is yet to come

Join us this Sunday as we continue our December series called Advent Conspiracy.  P. Sam will deliver a message entitled:

“Spend Less” based on 1 Timothy 6:6-21

We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.

EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.

We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.

We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.

EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.

We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.

We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.

EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.

Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.

We’ll see you this Sunday!


“Spend Less”

Spend less and free up resources for things that matter to Jesus. This would make great sense to celebrate Jesus in this way, wouldn’t it? The Bible warns often about greed and materialism. The love of money is the root of all evil. We are not to be haughty with our riches, but we need to understand how God is rich with us. When our pursuit stops being about money and spending, we begin to find time, space, resources to devote to more important matters of Christmas: experiencing the holy, embodying godliness, practicing generosity and experiencing the life that truly is life. Our conspiracy against consumerism may actually save our souls.
