Sunday Worship Services

9:00 AM • Nocatee
10:30 AM • Downtown

We invite you to join us for Sunday worship at one of our two campuses: the Downtown Campus in the heart of the city or the Nocatee Campus in Nocatee. No matter your season of life, your area of town, or your faith background, we have a place for you! At our worship services, you can expect sound, Biblical teaching and preaching, age-appropriate programming, a variety of ministry and discipleship opportunities, and dynamic worship. Click here to plan your visit and one of our guest services team members will personally help you and meet you on campus. We look forward to welcoming you to our family!

Beyond the twinkling lights, holiday treats, and family gatherings, our hearts cry “Come, thou long expected Jesus.” Unlike those of millennia past waiting for a sign of the Messiah, the Savior of the World, the coming King, we know Who He is. The Bible tells us His name is Jesus. The only hope for mankind came as a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger more than 2,000 years ago.

This Christmas, we celebrate the ultimate gift in Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that you, too, would know this Gift who offers peace and joy in a world that is increasingly dark. In fact, no other season reminds us how desperately we need a Savior more than Christmas- it reveals the deepest longings of our heart.

Whatever pain, loss, and sadness the year has held, we can sing with joy and expectation because of the gift of Jesus. We sing “Come, thou long expected Jesus” because He is the hope we have in this empty world. Not only can we celebrate that He came once as a baby in the manger so many years ago, but we can rejoice that He is coming again to make all things new.
