Hi, I’m Pastor Bruce.
to His Place, where the worship is heartfelt,
the message is straightforward, and the children
are given high priority. And please, just call
me Bruce (after all, I don’t refer to you
as Plumber Bill).
At His Place we appreciate authenticity, and
treasure transparency. We’re real people, in a real
world, serving a real God. That means we aim for a balanced
mixture of lighthearted self-awareness and thoughtful God-awareness.
Have you ever felt “out of place”
when faced with outmoded musical instruments, arcane religious
jargon, and inexplicable rituals? I have, too. We’ve
replaced those would-be barriers with culturally-relevant
music, language, and traditions.
Oh, and visitors are always welcome to investigate
our beliefs, patterns, and practices, in the pursuit of truth.
So, whether you’re a spiritual seeker or a committed
Christian, you’ve come to the right place … a
fun place to get serious about God!
Please look around and get to know us …
I’ll stay here and greet our next guest. And by the
way, I’m glad you stopped by!

Meals for the Grandy family
Our church family, Bruce and Connie Grandy, have appreciated meals while she was in the hospital and extended care; now she is home with Bruce caring for her around the clock.
If you would like to help minister to the family by providing a meal (or more!) to them, check out their Meal Train website which includes suggestions on how to prepare and deliver meals, including “add breakfast items”, delivering flowers, and providing condiments.
