The Road Church
The Road Church is an accepting community called to experience and to be God's presence everywhere. We believe that church happens wherever we are - at home, work, school, and play. We want to live into God's dream of a world where everyone and everything is made new. We want to love, serve, and give our lives to help make that happen.
The Road Church is a community built from two communities (formerly New Hope Church and Hillside Church) who decided that they would be better together. When it was decided in 2014 that the churches should explore a merger, no one knew exactly what the end result would look like. But here we are, 3 years later, a brand new community, diverse and gifted with a curious spirit that keeps us praying for open eyes, ears and hearts.
Our name The Road Church comes from the story of the Emmaus Road in Luke. It demonstrates there are many times in our own journeys that we are met by Jesus without even realizing He is with us – he’s always with us on the road even when we don’t know it! He is the one who reveals the truth to us, connecting our daily lives to the Big Story of Scripture. As a community who is united in our diversity, we hold on to Ephesians 4:4 (MSG) when it says ‘were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together both outwardly and inwardly’.
