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 continue our January series called WITH GOD. Pastor Sam will be sharing the message:

“WORSHIP” based on 1 Chronicles 16:23-36

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!



Many of us think that worship is something that we do once a week. It’s something that we “come to” and “leave from.” But true worship for those who are truly doing life with God is so much more than just a once a week activity. Worship is a daily commitment – a lifestyle and a faithstyle – that consistently and intentionally brings an individual to an awe inducing awareness of the greatness of God. When we realize and remember how great God is we will sing, ascribe, speak, think, declare, share and even shout this truth for all to know! Unfortunately, our worship is often pretty passive and without much enthusiasm. Those who worshipped in Bible times got hyped up about God and God’s power. In 2019, we want to move our community from passive worship to passionate worship. Anything less really wouldn’t be worship at all.
