At Core, we strive to provide an engaging service through live worship, relevant Biblical teaching, and other creative elements that help connect the dots. Our services are designed to be comfortable and non-threatening. No matter where you are in life, we want to help you encounter Jesus Christ. You’ll find a mixture of generations in attendance. Dress is casual, as we invite you to wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Normally, we strive to keep our services at around 70 minutes.


9:00AM & 10:45AM


We've started our 2024 by asking some of our biggest questions as it pertains to faith & God, and we thought there was no better plan than to keep that going - but this time to shift our focus to the place where the Christian faith is really centered... Jesus. Is He real? Did Jesus really do what we're supposed to believe He did? How do we know? Why do we follow? We're answering those questions together in our series, Investigating Jesus. We're kicking it all off on Sunday, February 18 thru Sunday, March 24. We believe this series, & the proof about Jesus, can change everything!

We want you to be a part of this powerful series leading us towards Easter! It's happening every Sunday @ 9:00a & 10:45a.

Work Night

We’re making a big push towards revealing the Dream Center to our community through an “Open House”. Now that the contractors have completed work on the second floor, we’re ready to put the finishing touches on the facility. On Tuesday, February 27 @ 6:00p, we will be doing a big “Work Night” at 109 Auburn Ave. These are great nights to get to know other people at Core & have a purpose to impact our city. We would love to link arms with you to make our vision come to life. We’ll have work for all skill levels & abilities.

MOVE 2024

Summer is just around the corner and we’re already starting to prepare for some big things for our Inside Out students (9-12th grade). This summer we're taking our high school students back to MOVE! MOVE is a 5-day event designed to help students take a next step in their relationship with Jesus, as well as grow their relationships with each other. MOVE is happening June 23-27 in Bowling Green, OH on the campus of BGSU. We believe this one week could make a huge impact on your student & their faith. The all-inclusive cost for the week is $450.

Hope For A City, Hope For The World

We LOVE our city. It is our city, our town, and our home. We feel that our city, and our church, are at their best when we partner together. We are for our city and are constantly pouring resources into it to help make it the best city around.

We believe the local church should have a global impact. Because of this, we partner with an amazing care point in Guatemala.
