We really want you here, but we know our building can be a little hard to access. Our building is at the northwest corner of the Bowen and Northfield Roads intersection. We have two driveways, one is accessible from southbound Bowen Road, it is on the right shortly after you pass Beban Park and Rosstown Road. The other driveway is accessible from westbound Northfield Rd, this driveway is shared with the gas station on the corner. When you are leaving, please be advised that both driveways are right turn only to exit.

We desire our church to be a community where the value of each person is honored; where people are free to worship and grow free from abuse; and when abuse has occurred, a place where the response is compassion and justice that foster healing.*
To help us as we live into that, our Safe Church Team maintains an Abuse Prevention Policy which you can read here AbusePreventionPolicy.pdf
If you have any questions or concerns about Safe Church matters, please contact Pastor Kelli.
