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."
