Plan A Visit

Welcome to Pines

We’ve designed our weekend worship experience with you in mind! Modern music, relatable messages, casual atmosphere and huge fun for the kids.

We believe our job is simply to create an atmosphere where you, your family and your friends can have an authentic encounter with Jesus. Also, enjoy a bottomless cup of local coffee in a fun atmosphere.
When you arrive on-site, turn on your hazard lights and the parking team will direct you to Guest Parking. Our team will be ready to connect with you at the green 'New Here’ tent. And, from there, help you and your family get settled and ready for the service.

If your children will be joining you for church, we offer a safe, clean, and fun environment for infants through 5th grade. Our Pines Kids team looks forward to meeting you and serving your family. We recommend arriving 15 minutes prior to your chosen service time.

Groups allow you to meet other members and develop relationships that will spur on your relationship with God. As Church of the Pines grows, groups allow us to “stay small” and connected.
