Free parking is available in the lots behind and to the right of our facility, as well as on the neighborhood streets around it.
Our hope is that our Gatherings are a relational odyssey of people and God - a place where everyone can find a genesis, where it’s safe to be an inquirer, where you can come as you are in full authenticity, a communal moment plucked from each week set aside for a time for the 21st century urban existence to collide with the divine. Sunday Gatherings blend live music, interactive worship, and thought-provoking conversation, to create an environment where you can encounter God.
We strive to create a place that evokes deep thought, reflection, and connection to God for both those who walk deeply with him, but also for those who aren’t sure where they are.
Not a Jesus-follower, per se? You are a huge reason why we exist. Come and inquire, observe, participate, listen, chat, laugh, and be. Grab coffee, make new friends, sing with us, and hear teaching that is both engaging and challenging.
Kids & Students
We provide programming for children ages six weeks through eighth grade, in the first floor wing of our facility. Parents are welcome to use either entrance, but we recommend parking in the Nandina St. lot and entering there. Once you enter the Greenhouse wing, you’ll find helpful volunteers with badges waiting to greet your little ones and middle school students. They will also direct you to the stairway or hall that will lead you back to our café & lobby area.
If you have a newborn younger than six weeks, or if you choose not to check your child into Greenhouse, our kids ministry, we ask that you sit in the very back three rows of our auditorium during the gathering. If your child becomes fussy or restless, there’s a Parent & Child area in the hallway near the welcome center.
Students in grades six through eight are invited to attend the Middle School Bloc (MSB), which is also located in the Greenhouse wing. You will notice the brightly colored signage. If your Middle Schooler is new, be comforted by the fact that our MSB leaders are experts in making them feel welcomed!
