VISITING A NEW CHURCH IS KINDA WEIRD.
IT'S HARD TO FIND A CHURCH! IT'S NOT EASY TO VISIT A NEW CHURCH! WE GET IT!
Just remember Crave Life folks are just a bunch of regular nice people.
We are centered on the belief that "Love Has No Labels." Everyone is truly welcomed, we know you hear that from every church, however here we actually mean it! If you have kids, please let them be kids. We understand that life is wild and that's totally fine. If you have not been to church for a while, then this place might be the perfect starting point.
The point is that you can belong here and while the norm is separation and division, we here choose to live differently, fostering unity. Hope you join us sometime.
