OneLife’s Community Christmas Services
OneLife will be holding our annual community Christmas services on December 23 & 24! Come experience the sights and sounds of the season during this modern, yet still traditional Christmas production. From candlelight and Christmas carols to lights, music, and more, this is an event you won’t forget! Visit to see all the service times and to reserve your free tickets today.

No Services, December 31
Each year OneLife takes the last Sunday of the year off to allow our volunteers, staff, and church to rest. So enjoy that Sunday with family and friends on December 31 and we will see you back in the New Year on January 7 at each of our campuses!

MyOneLife - A 4-Week Sunday Morning Small Group Experience
The first step for every OneLifer to get involved and get to know our church culture and mission is a 4-week small group experience called MyOneLife. It takes place on Sunday mornings in the Meeting Room at each of our campuses. You’ll learn about the vision & values of our church, discover your personal mission & spiritual gifts, and find out tons of ways to get involved. The next MyOneLife will take place in the new year, so for more information or to sign up, mark the “MyOneLife” box on your Connection Card.


If you’ve given your life to Jesus but haven’t gone public with your story through baptism then it’s time to take that step! Mark the baptism box on your Connection Card and we’ll help you get started.

John 8:12 NLT
12 Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”

Mark 1:1-3 NLT
1 This is the Good News about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God.
