CIA is a diverse group of friendly disciples who desire to extend a warm welcome to anyone and everyone in our community! We are a warm and accepting church which desires to be a lighthouse to the community.

Both of our services take place on Sunday morning and are about 1 hour and 15 minutes long. People wear everything from suits or dresses to jeans at our 9:30 service, while people wear anything casual including shorts and sweats at our 11:30 service. We strive for authentic passionate worship of our Savior, seeking the presence of the Holy Spirit. We hope you will join us! Pastor Chris endeavors to give a message that is relevant and applicable to your daily life…without lots of jargon.

When you come, just enter the building through the main doors under the steeple.

Suggestions for First Timers:
These tips might make your first more memorable.

  • Spend some time in prayer and consider what God is doing in your life that is prompting you to visit church.
  • Do a test run and see how long it takes you to get to church.
  • Bring a friend, some times doing something new is easier with a friend.
  • Call ahead to ensure that everything is happening the way the web says it is (we try to keep up on that with changes, but don't want you to come on a day or night we have adjusted the schedule in some way).
  • arrive about 15 min ahead of the start time.
  • Don't worry about what to wear, we aren't worried about it :)
  • Plan to stick around a few minutes afterwards and meet some of the folks that attend the church.
  • Don't hesitate to say "I'm new here".
  • If you have a Bible, we'd encourage you to bring it with you, even if you've never used it before.
