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!



Prayer is our willingness to engage in spiritual battle. Them forces are strong, yo! We do not live out our lives of faith in a vacuum. There is a spiritual war that rages. Evil lies close at hand. That evil is not some sort of generic concept for all the things working against us. Evil has a name and its desire is to infiltrate our daily living and our daily thoughts. Prayer positions us for victory, and prayer aligns us with the one who is in us and who is greater than the one who is in this world. As we remember Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and his last week on earth, we will be reminded that in the most difficult of moments, Jesus prayed. Praying the Jesus way is to pray against evil, to pray for deliverance and protection. Prayer will help us be strong through the darkness of “Good Friday” and lead us to the victory we experience on “Easter Sunday!”
