At King of Glory, we believe that when you pursue your relationship with Christ through worship, through the community of seekers, and through life giving service, God is honored and we in turn grow in the richness of our faith.
We think the best way to grow awareness of God’s call for our lives is in the context of relationships. Through Small Group Ministry and our Fellowship Groups we find moments of grace and wisdom that open us up to God’s story in our lives!
People of hope expect to make a difference in the wider community. When people of God serve in the context of church or city or the world, it brings out the shape of our call and it builds the credibility of our faith!
Do you want to discover an intimate path with God, grow deep in the mysteries of faith and find your life’s call and significance? We invite you to join us Sunday morning. We offer two traditional services at 8:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. and a Jazz Blend service at 9:30 a.m. We celebrate Holy Communion at every service.
If you have questions or would like to speak with someone about visiting, please contact Judy Craigo.

God ordained parents to be the primary spiritual guides for their families, and while they are their first teachers, we are eager to engage, supplement and support families as they help their children grow toward mature, Christian adulthood. We offer vibrant programs beginning at 2 months of age.
