We seek to offer a safe environment where it’s okay for you to sit back, observe, and enjoy. Participate as much or as little as you feel comfortable. We work to create a welcoming atmosphere that encourages authentic relationships and growth. Our mission is to serve you and help you grow. We do our best to help you connect with a church family that is committed to helping you become a fully developed follower of Jesus. We want to provide such a memorable and positive experience that you not only come back but also encourage your family and friends to join us.Music is an important part of our Church activities. We also use our Fusion Cafe for outreach purposes by bringing in top talent and providing a unique and comfortable environment to support the arts.
What are services like?
Each service starts with a full band of professional musicians playing contemporary worship music along with additional special music services from time to time. Our preaching is conversational style and to the point, and we keep our sermons and music portion of the service to an hour total with music taking up half of that time. Sermons are very relevant to our needs when it comes to navigating through life in our current culture, and are meant to point us towards a life in Christ. We are also dog friendly!
What is the community like?
We have a great small community of believers at all different levels of faith. We are made up of new believers, some still searching, and some seasoned believers, but we all have a deep Godly love for each other. We pride ourselves on being a very non-judgemental church. We believe that God meets everyone where they are, and so do we. Our church is a diverse group of gifted musicians, artists, teachers, bikers, and others from all walks of life, but we share a common generosity and hospitality. You will feel the warmth and love when you walk in the door.
What if I’m not a Christian?
We are here for the non-Christians as well, and believe that the church exists for you. That is why we are here. We are not a private social club of believers that do not want the status quo disturbed. You have a safe place with us to explore the ways of God without any pressure or judgement. Our Fusion Cafe ministry of entertainment attracts many non-believers or non-Christians who get curious and attend our services. All are welcome.
Senior Pastor of Butler Community Church
Pastor Chuck is also a professional drummer who, after playing in bands all his life, became the drummer for a Christian rock band that toured all throughout Israel for 10 years.

His diverse background and love for God and people give him a very relational edge in coming alongside all seekers and seasoned Christians alike. His preaching style is conversational and awakening. He has a gift of ministering to all age groups and economic backgrounds as well as multicultural background.
