Encounter God

At Nativity, we welcome people wherever they are in their experience of God.

Together, we grow spiritually. Our spiritual life and connection to God is deepened in a variety of ways; therefore we provide a variety of opportunities. Where is God calling you today? At Nativity, others can help you discern that call.

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
–Jeremiah 33:3
