Thank you for visiting our website. If you are new to Celebration we hope you click your way around to get an idea of what our church is like. One of our newer members, in talking about his first visits here, described us as "casual, but focused." While our style may be casual and we love humor, we are serious in our desire to provide a warm and safe environment for learning more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus in today's world and how to put that knowledge into practice.
We welcome people with questions...and believe that through asking, exploring, and sharing we grow in understanding. We are regular people, each with flaws and strengths and we strive to be authentic with God and each other. To us, "come as you are," means just that!
From 8:45 to 9:00 AM and again from 10:15 to 10:30 AM, we serve coffee, juices, rolls, and bagels. At 9:00 and at 10:30, the music starts. It’s mostly contemporary, with a mix of guitars, keyboard, drums, and a lively worship team. You’ll find folks dressed in jeans, or khakis—mostly casual, in other words, though some like to dress up. The message is designed to connect the Bible with daily life. Jesus is alive and well in the 21st century. We use PowerPoint, an occasional drama or video clip, and testimonies from real, live people whose lives are being touched by their faith. If you decide to visit us for a Sunday Worship service, be sure to sign the attendance pad, if you leave us your address and phone number we'll deliver a loaf of Panera cinnamon-raisin bread as a thank you.
Celebration Church hosts a Newcomer Dinner once a quarter where you can enjoy a meal, meet other recent attenders, and learn more about Celebration's vision and mission.
We know your children are special. You will find a cheery, well-run nursery for children up to age three, in case you need that. We also offer Sunday classes for children ages 4 years through 5th grade at both services, and a class for grades 6th through 8th grade classes at the 10:30 service. Children beyond nursery age stay with us for music and a special children’s time, where they meet with the pastor for a story and a blessing. Then, during the message time, they will be in a class especially prepared for them.
Our small groups are the "DNA" of Celebration. We'd love to connect you with a group of people who will help you love, learn, and grow!
There are a growing number of opportunities for growth and service. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we would love to help you create it.
