    Welcome to Mountain
    Various dates

    If you're new to Mountain or simply want to learn more about what it means to be a Christian, "Welcome To Mountain" is your essential next step. Lead Pastor Ben Cachiaras or a Campus Pastor will help you discover the basics of the Christian faith, what kind of church we are and how you can be a part of this special place.

    We hope to see you there!

    Each Welcome to Mountain gathering provides either a meal and/or refreshments. Childcare is provided through age 10.

    Note: as your Welcome to Mountain date approaches, an email will be sent to confirm your attendance. Reply and let us know if you can make it and include the names of those attending with you. Also, confirm the number and ages of children needing childcare.

    Christmas Services

    The Christmas season is the most joyful time of year. Finding a Christmas church service to attend? That can be another story. Maybe you’re worried about having to elbow through the crowds to find a seat. Perhaps it’s been a while since you’ve been to church. Or maybe you’ve never been to church. Don’t let that stop you.

    At Mountain, you’ll find a warm, welcoming place to celebrate the season. We’re non-denominational, non-judgmental, and non-boring. Whether you’ve been here before or are stopping by for the first time, come just as you are. You’re among friends.

    Let us know you're coming!

    Let us know you're coming to a service by selecting one of the registration links below. All services are free and open to the public. You don't have to register to attend, but your registration helps us prepare the best experience for everyone!

    Disaster Relief Trips

    Update - Hurricane Florence

    Please pray for the impact Hurricane Florence has had on the Carolinas. Mountain will be coordinating with partners in the area to find out how the church can help. If you are interested in helping with this or any Disaster Relief Trip, please send an email, or come to an interest meeting.


    The hurricane recovery efforts in Houston, Jacksonville, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have begun. It will take time to restore these places, and in 2018 Mountain will be investing in these areas hit hard by the storms. You can be part of the recovery effort in a few ways:

    • Give financially to the trips and relief efforts
    • Go on a trip to the storm-torn areas in need (details below)

    2018 Trips to Affected Areas

    To build in some consistency/culture to our efforts we will host monthly gatherings to regroup, brief, debrief, celebrate, train, inspire, cast vision, answer questions, and PRAY. Since this is such a “moving target” in each location, as we receive word from the 4 fields, we will adapt to the needs along the way.

    You don't need to sign up to attend, but download and fill out the trip application (below) before the meeting. Bring the form with you to the meeting.

    Healing Through the Holidays Luncheon
    Sunday, December 2 @ 1:30 PM

    The holidays are a difficult time of the year when dealing with the loss of a loved one. Gather with your family as well as others and celebrate the life and memory of your loved one. Share who your loved one was - even though our loved ones are not here physically, we can still introduce them to others and include them in the holiday season!

    We want this to be a time of getting to know your loved one in an uplifting, supportive surrounding. Healing tears will surely be shed, but our goal is to lift you up emotionally and have you leave feeling filled with joy and blessed that this person was in your life.
