Note on Street Parking

Multi-location News


For three weeks in August, Evergreen, The Rock, and The Urban Refuge, will be uniting around a special message series called “United by the Core.” You will hear messages from gifted pastors and testimonies from members sharing an array of faith-inspiring stories. These three weeks will stir up your faith, hope and love! 


This year we are spotlighting "Core Value 1: Grace & Love" with a message series entitled, The Burning Heart of God. At the very core of God is a burning, passionate, inexhaustible love--a love so great that God put his precious Son in our place – bearing the wrath and punishment for our sin. Why? For God so loved the world!
