What can I expect?

How long is An encounter service?

Services begin with the Encounter Worship leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screen so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our pastor (James Raymer) will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What's the culture like at Encounter?

Sunday's at Encounter are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Encounter Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Encounter Kids is offered at every service for kids ages infant through Grade 5.
