Welcome to Petra

We are excited that you're considering visiting us. From the moment you drive into our parking lot, we want you to feel at home here. Get a warm welcome from a greeter, get your kids situated at our Kids' Hub at the East Entrance, stop by our Café to enjoy a beverage and danish, then find your spot in the Sanctuary as you make yourself comfortable. We warmly welcome you and pray you’ll experience God’s presence as we gather for worship.

Belong The Journey

Church is a community of people we belong to, not an event we attend. It is our hope at Petra every follower of Jesus becomes a vibrant part of our church family.

Want to know more about us? Check out this video on the right and our Belong page for our Sunday schedule.

Belong Page

We think going to church should be a fulfilling and meaningful experience that really helps you connect with God and his people. You should also be able to relax and be yourself. So whether you’re looking for a place to connect for the first time, or you are in a season of transition from somewhere else, we hope you’ll join us on a Sunday morning to experience for yourself what Petra is about.

warm & inviting atmosphere

Petra is a welcoming group of people who will receive you just as you are. You’ll find men, women and children from a variety of ages, races, and economic backgrounds, all striving to know God better and eager to help you feel at ease.

casual dress

Whether you are a jeans and t-shirt person or if your prefer suits and dresses, you will feel at home at Petra.

engaging worship

Petra’s worship style is contemporary, inspiring, enthusiastic, and sincere. We purposefully seek to engage all five senses through the creative use of the arts because we believe God's love and magnificence are worth celebrating.

relevant teaching

Our times together on Sundays and in other settings are opportunities to learn about – and be challenged by – the life and teachings of Christ. Our heart is to make the Bible completely relevant for everyone today.

family-friendly and single-friendly

Commitment to family and singles is a vital part of our ministry at Petra. During each of our services, we provide exciting and safe environments for children through fifth grade to learn and understand more about God. We also offer amazing ministries for teens during the week.

For My Kids

We use a computerized check-in system for all children from Babies to Grade 4. Children and adults receive matching tags that stick onto the child's shirt. When it is time to pick up children, adults must provide their matching tag. 

Kids' Hub

All children are checked-in at the Kids' Hub. The first time you come, your information will be entered in our system so that the next time you join us all you need to do is check-in your children in one of our check-in computers in the Kids' Hub.


Don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
