Meet the Family

At Encounter Life Ministries, our vision is to love and lead our community in a manner that reaches the lost, stimulates spiritual growth and discipleship, and helps open the door to encounters with God’s love, Jesus’ grace and mercy, and the comfort of the Holy Spirit.

When You Arrive

When you arrive for service, our family is looking forward to:

Welcoming you with a smile

Answering any question you may have

Showing you around

Praying for any needs you have

Offering encouragement and love



We are happy to be meeting in person each week, but we encourage you to continue to do what makes you most comfortable. If you join us in person, you are not required to wear a mask, but you are welcome to. We have colored, rubber bracelets available at the entrance. You are welcome to grab one to wear to signal to others if you are still most comfortable social distancing. If you’re still not ready to join us in person – we completely understand. Our messages are available on YouTube, and we encourage you to follow us on social media. Whether you are with us physically or not, you’re still part of the family.

What To Wear

Encounter Life Ministries has a strict dress code – wear something. We are a casual environment and want you to be comfortable.


SA Worship

Worship through music is a big part of the identity of Encounter Life Ministries. Our worship team members have been gifted by God to lead the congregation into a time of lively worship which typically includes guitar, drums, bass, piano, and voice.

You may see people standing, sitting, closing their eyes, raising their hands, reading their Bibles, drawing, or writing notes. People may move about to speak encouragement to or pray for others. We strive to create an atmosphere of freedom.

We believe that a heart of worship is an awesome way to have an encounter with God. Our worship time may be longer than you are used to, but we know that it takes time to put aside the busyness of life, quiet your mind, and place your focus on God. We encourage you to use this time to allow God to speak to your heart as you give Him praise, honor, and glory.


We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and applicable to our daily lives. Reading and studying the Bible is a profound way to encounter God. Our weekend teaching is focused on the message of God’s enduring love, mercy, and grace for those who receive the gift of salvation by accepting Jesus’ atoning sacrifice on the cross, and what that means practically for our daily lives here as we look forward to our eternal reward in heaven.

Not only do we provide teaching and discipleship during our weekend services, but you can also find more on our YouTube channel, blog, and Facebook page.

More Than Kid Friendly

Encounter Life Ministries is more that kid friendly. We love kids of all ages! Kids join their families during the worship portion of our service and then are dismissed to their classes.

We have an early childhood space where kids birth through preschool will be well loved as they play, sing, and hear stories.

Kids from kindergarten through 4th grade learn with the Orange curriculum.
