We were told about Access a few years after we were married- and at a point where we were looking for community. After being members and visitors of other churches, we knew we were wanting something different, something close-knit, something authentic. Visiting a new church is always intimidating, but Access felt welcoming, inclusive. The music is initially what lead us to keep visiting. The amount of energy and love put into the worship experience was inspiring. But it was our small group that made Access family. Now, 4 years and two kids later, we feel so blessed and lucky to call Access our home. This church and its diverse community is striving to make a big impact in the world, and we cannot wait to see what lies ahead.
