Churches

My wife and I call following two churches our home churches. At both, you will find the truth and grace of Jesus presented, with excellent music as well as loving people.


Liquid Church

Like 12 & 7, Liquid Church is experiential and relevant with a full rock band, chill atmosphere, creative environment, and extensive use of multi-media. Pastor Tim Lucas brings new insight to Scripture and God's will for his people. Liquid has recently launched an internet campus.

 

Evangel Church

At Evangel, you will find a more contemporary and traditional service. Pastor Kevin Brennan makes it seem like God is sending each congregant a specific message.
