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 at EMBRACE as we close out our November sermon series entitled HEART MATTERS:A Conversation on Money, Generosity and What Really Matters. Pastor Sam will be sharing the message:

“GROWING” based on Ephesians 4:1-16

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!



Paul’s description of the church working properly is one of body parts working in conjunction with one another. When the body is healthy, growth happens. The vision of EMBRACE is to grow – not just in numbers – but in our faith and in our impact. And this takes all of us. Every part of the body is important. Every member of our community is vital. On this Thanksgiving Sunday, we will be reminded of the grace that has been “given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.” Our faithful response will be to go “all in”. We will celebrate new members on this Sunday as well as offer a “formal ask” for new commitments and increased commitments.
