GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Destiny a great one!
Destiny meets every weekend and offers several additional small groups and Bible studies to plug into during the week as well. Our typical service times are as follows:
- Sunday morning services: meet at 8:30 and 10:30 am – nursery and children’s ministry are provided during the 10:30 service, from birth to 5th grade.
- A live stream, with prayer and chat moderation, is also available for our 10:30 a.m. service. See the viewing options available here.
Another big day for us is Wednesday nights. We have services for elementary and teen students (which are currently online, for now, due to COVID-19 — see our Ministries page for details). In addition, we have several adult small groups and classes that meet. Childcare is available.
If you want the fast track to learn more about Destiny and how you can best fit into our church family, join us for the 3-week FINDING YOUR DESTINY GROWTH TRACK series on Wednesday nights. Click here for more information.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
HOW LONG IS A CHURCH SERVICE?
On average, a Destiny church service is about 90 minutes in length. Services begin with the band leading the church in music – song lyrics are projected on to the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. We love to worship! And we are expressive in our worship. Expect to see children actively engaged, worshippers with banners and flags, some who will be dancing, etc.
After the music portion of service is complete, one of our leadership team members will typically come out to share upcoming events and such. Lastly, one of our pastors — and sometimes a special guest — will share an encouraging and hope-filled message, with Jesus at the center of it all.
All of this is subject to the leading of the Holy Spirit, but this is a typical expression of worship.
WHAT’S THE CULTURE LIKE AT DESTINY?
Sundays at Destiny are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week – and at Destiny NextGen, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our NextGen program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra 5 minutes to get signed in for the Destiny NextGen experience. Sunday morning nursery and children’s ministry services are offered at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning service, for ages infant-through-grade 5.
Several of our teenagers serve in these Sunday morning programs as junior staff (serving alongside adults). In addition, there is a lot of great programming for older kids during the week as well. Visit out Ministries Page for more information.
