60 minutes. However, you can hang out in our Café for food and fellowship as long as you like.

Upbeat and inspiring contemporary Christian music provided by our Nativity House Band, blended with other styles of music including traditional Gregorian Chant during the Eucharistic Prayer.

Your kids get to enjoy an exciting space just for them! Every Sunday, children from 6 weeks-5th grade get to encounter Jesus through music, dance, crafts, and Bible lessons in a colorful and safe environment.
