We are just getting started here, and our prayer is to cast a vision that inspires followers of Jesus to create refreshing church environments that people actually want to come to.  If you are looking for a church home that is relevant, personable, loving, and not interested in 'playing church' but living out the mission of Jesus...then WaterEdge Church is the church for you. Come join us as we grow together in Christ."

    Administrative Assistant

    Hi! My name is Marilyn Engler. I recently returned from living in Uganda, Africa for a year, serving with a non-profit organization as their Sponsorship Coordinator.

    This last August I married a wonderful man, Wyatt (You may have seen him play the drums at WaterEdge) and moved from Oregon while he completes his last year of school.

    I can't wait to grow my community here at WaterEdge, I know God has some amazing things in store!
