We acknowledge that all of us are on a journey. We’re at different places, coming from different experiences—oftentimes headed in very different directions. Our world offers many paths to choose from, but we believe that the God who is over all things has a path marked out for each of us. So how do we choose? That’s a question that we’re constantly exploring in our church community.
We want to be a church known for relentlessly seeking the LORD and His truth. We serve a great and loving God who is for all people, and we want to be a church that reflects that. Because the truth is, as neighbors and families, friends and companions, we’re not called to journey alone. Here at the Kroc Center, we are privileged to be located in such a vibrant and diverse community, and it is our prayerful passion to love God, love others, and serve and love our community in Jesus’ name.
We invite you to take your next step on your spiritual journey by coming to one of our community gatherings. Wherever you are, it is our hope that you are able to discover just what a beautiful journey life can be with God directing our paths.
Kroc Church is a place where people from all walks of life are welcomed and belong. We gather to study the Bible, worship God and progress together in community so that lives are changed through Jesus. Come join us, you belong here! Read more about what we believe.
