We know that church is less about the "program" and more about the people! So, we provide multiple avenues and opportunities to connect and create friendships even on a Sunday morning!
Each week you'll find a warm and inviting atmosphere in our coffee cafe. We brew Caribou Coffee from Minnesota (where our pastor is from!). We have a weekly variety of treats for both your kids and for you. Comfy couches and high tables provide places to meet with old and new friends and enjoy conversation before the service. We recommend coming 5-10 minutes early to enjoy the cafe.
We don't believe in putting on a show for you to watch (you can do that online!) We believe those who attend in person should be rewarded with an experience you can't get online. Our services encourage participation whether in the music, messages, responses and worship stations. We love to laugh and enjoy experiencing the service with you. Our comfy chairs and open atmosphere give us all opportunity to engage in meaningful ways. Want to stay in the loop? Pastor Jason writes regular updates on what is happening at The Ark.

This is an ever expanding area that is under construction. However, we currently have a few groups that meet on Sunday mornings before The Ark (9:45-10:45am).
And we have two semesters of classes on Wednesday nights. Wednesdays provide a great experience for your kids if you have them and for you. A variety of topics form the background of your time where you'll get to meet new people, connect in authentic ways and be yourself. Check the all-church schedules for our next set of classes.
Make a difference! We have various teams you can join which provide opportunity to meet people while you're making a difference! It's the best way we've found to make this place yours!
Can you smile? hold a conversation? be interested in other people? We need you! We all know how critical a first impression is and you can help us make a good one! Also, if you enjoy helping people connect with others and you like talking about this church, you would also love this team.
We are looking for a few good people who would be available for just 10 minutes after the service is over to pray with people or be an encouragement to them. No experience necessary, just like people (and praying). We'd love to have 2 people each week of the month.
Do you enjoy a good brainstorm session? like thinking about creative ways to communicate a message? like movies, art, music and want to find ways to integrate those things into church? we will create compelling services that engage with people and where people can engage.
Do you like preparing sweet food or buying some? enjoy brewing some coffee, providing a cool atmosphere, and saying hello to caffeine-hungry folks (and their kids)? This could be perfect for you (even if you don't like coffee).
Did you work on the AV team at your school? always envied those good looking techies who got all the dates? You know who you are! Tech helps us create a great online presence as well as fosters an amazing in-house experience! Moving slides, running the camera angles, turning up the bass -- just a sampling of some of the great stuff this team gets to do.
Do you play an instrument other than the kazoo? or maybe you sing (not just in the shower) --- we'd like to build a larger team so we can rotate folks and create a great sound. (We are even open to specialized instruments that we may use on special occasions like violin, bongos, and the ability to belch the alphabet etc.)
