Care Circle

Our small group gatherings are called CARE Circles, which stand for Community, Accountability, Relationships, and Evangelism.

We meet weekly and share our lives and pray for one another as we fellowship in His Word. Our CARE Circles are organized by life stage – college students, young adults, and married couples. It’s a place where we find Christ-centered community, accountability, build relationships, and introduce others to Christ.

Every Sunday 2:30 PM

Word from Our Pastor

As the pastor of Encounter Ministry, I’ve truly blessed and excited to see our small and young congregation grow in the knowledge and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our vision as a Korean American church is to grow as a bicultural and bilingual community of faith overcoming challenges and barriers as a family in Christ.

Opportunities for personal growth as well as opportunities for service abound in our ministries. I welcome you in the name and love of the Lord Jesus Christ to join us as we fulfill His great commission together!
