our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God

our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves

our hope is that the best is yet to come

Join us this Sunday as we continue in the sermon series:

“SCRIPT: Making Scripture the Script of Our Lives”

This week Pastor Sam will be preaching on “The Fall.” It didn’t take humanity long to mess up paradise. Does this have anything to do with why the world is so messed up today? Is there a way out of this curse? Come find out this Sunday!

We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.

EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.

We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.

We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.

EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.

We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.

We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.

EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.

Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.

We’ll see you this Sunday!



The Biblical narrative shows us that it did not take long for humanity to destroy what God created. As much as we need to know God’s intent in creation, we need to become fully aware about humanity’s tendency to stray away from God’s perfect plan. Ego and greed leads man and woman away from the abundant blessings of God. When humanity chooses to do things their own way, they forfeit God’s blessings. What results is sin and shame. And humanity’s response is to simply hide. In this narrative of “the Fall”, we can begin to understand why even today so many of us struggle with shame in our lives. Shame was never God’s intent for people.
