At Encounter, church isn’t a place you go on Sunday, it’s what you do every day of the week. Our mission is to love God, love people and make disciplies. We do that through our vision – To give, love and serve in Jesus’ name and see our community transformed one person at a time.


Small Groups

Adult ministries at Encounter are designed to make the big Sunday morning church experience feel a little smaller. We've crafted our environments to help you connect with others who are in the same season of life, forming close-knit communities to navigate the ups and downs of those seasons together. Through classes and small group programs, our goal is to make adult ministries at our church a place where anyone in our congregation can grow closer to community while ultimately growing closer to Christ. By meeting together, sharing meals, walking through curriculum, studying the Word, and simply doing life with another, the adults in our congregation have a safe place where they can get connected with the resources, support, and friendships to help them live fuller lives in Christ.


Kids

Kids! Let's face it: no parent looks forward to the weekly battle of getting their kids to church. None of us wants church to be a place our kids dread going. And the good news is, we don't think it has to be! It's our hope that by creating fun, exciting environments where kids can experience God in new ways, we'll help you avoid the Sunday morning struggle and make church a place your kids can't wait to get to each week!

Students

If you spend any time around our church at all, you'll quickly learn one thing: we love students. They're smart. They're funny. They're bold. And they're bursting with potential. We know that the middle and high school years are a time where students are most in need of kindness and community and someone to walk alongside them as they grow. Our student ministry provides just that, connecting students with one another as well as with leaders who want to support them in their journeys.
