From Pastor Steve

If you are visiting our website then, maybe, you are looking for a church home? I know that finding a church home is really hard, whether you have spent your whole life going to church, or if this will be your first time. So, let me tell you something about Cascades.

This is a church full of ordinary people, with everyday issues and problems, just like you, who believe that there is a powerful creator God who loves us, cares for us and has a plan and a purpose for our lives. Coming to church here is like joining a family. We really strive to be a church family where anyone will feel welcome – and that includes you!

Here at Cascades we preach and teach the Bible as God wrote it, clearly, boldly and unapologetically. God’s Word is central to everything that we do here. Our aim as a faith community is to worship authentically, and live-out our faith in every area of our lives. We want every member of the Cascades family to feel loved and important, to both God and to us.

So is Cascades right for you? Why don’t you come and find out? Maybe see you Sunday!
