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

Experience Big Faith In Small Settings at EMBRACE this Sunday as we begin our DOWNSIZING Sermon Series. Pastor Sam will be sharing the message:

“Small Beginnings” based on Acts 2:42-47

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!


“Small Beginnings”

The Church at its inception grew by staying small. As far as we know, the first century church was a rapidly growing movement of house churches. People met in homes and they grew in intimate settings of community. People knew each other. They took care of one another. And they put their faith at the center of their relationships. 2000 years later, the basic method of church and spiritual growth has not changed. The only way that we can continue to grow as the church that God has in mind, we need to be intentional about gathering in smaller groups of mutual accountability that fosters spiritual growth. As we get ready to launch a new season of small groups in the fall we need to be completely sold on this truth that this is God’s ultimate plan for our growth.
