Whatever your thoughts are on church or your beliefs about God, you are all welcome here.
At Shelter, we invite you to challenge and be challenged. We don’t expect you to agree with everything we say and do today. All we ask is that you’re open to considering the possibility that there is a God who loves you and is pursuing you.
We believe that no matter where you’ve come from, or what’s happening in your life the best really is yet to come! God is doing amazing things in and through Shelter, and we invite you to be a part of all that’s happening

Your Kids Will Love It Here

What if hanging out a church for an hour, learning about God didn’t have to be boring or feel like you were being babysat? What if it was actually….an adventure?
Shelter offers specific environments for kids of all ages to ask questions, learn about God, and have lots of fun. We go all-out to create a place where your child can experience the life-changing truth about Gods-word. We use age-appropriate language and activities that will engage and excite your
child. We want to partner with you, the parents, in raising up kids who are passionate and excited about God!

Your child’s safety is a huge priority to us. To ensure their safety we have three primary features established; a secure check-in system with exclusive parent identification security tags, trained security personnel strategically placed throughout the building, and trained volunteers who have all undergone and passed a comprehensive background check.
Let us show your kids a great time while you experience our worship service in the auditorium.

Get Involved

At Shelter, we have exciting ways for you to get involved. It takes lots of volunteers to make Shelter happen every week. We’re always looking for more folks to help do things from hanging out with kids to making coffee. Just give it a try. You can meet new friends, grow spiritually, and actually make a difference. For more information, visit the welcome center.

Community: It’s What We Do Best!

Life Groups are small groups of people who meet on a regular basis to ”do life together.” Life Groups are for healing and connection, for people who want to study a certain topic, or be around people who have experienced what they have. If you would like to further explore what it’s all about, stop by the welcome center.
