Thrive Inclusive Worship Night

Although we invite all people to worship with us on Sunday morning, we realize that these experiences can lack accessibility. We understand that the lights and sounds can be too much for some and we know that the message might be too long for others to sit quietly. That’s why we’re passionate about inclusive worship services!


They are in a safe place for people to worship in any way they feel led. Movement and sensory tools are not only encouraged, but embraced in this setting. Inclusive worship events are open to everyone and we’d love for you to join us! Stay tuned for details on the next one!

Inspiring and equipping all generations.
