We love God and do what we can to love our neighbors, serve our community, help the needy and bless the nations. The best way to learn more about us is to attend one of our Sunday gatherings.

Welcome Team

Dedicated volunteers are available to make your Briarwood experience pleasant and memorable. They will help you find a class or lead you to our worship center. If you have children they can walk you to our children’s areas or nursery. The welcome team will gladly assist you however you need them to.

Worship Services

We offer multiple worship services that incorporate a broad variety of musical styles with the express intent of exalting the Lord and engaging the believer in meaningful, heart-felt worship.

We Love Children

Nursery: For infants through age four we provide an excellent nursery program.  Throughout the worship service these young children are affectionately cared for, played with and prayed for. Our nursery is filled with age appropriate toys, books and music.

Children’s Church: For children in Pre-k through 5th grade we have a special Children’s Church.  The children meet at the same time as the adults.  During this time all of the children will partake in a variety of actives and a Bible lesson geared for their particular age group.

What to Wear

Whatever you are comfortable in.  Some people get a little dressed up, while others wear jeans and a tee shirt. Just be yourself.

About Giving

It is important to us that guests do not feel pressured to give anything. What’s of primary importance to us is that you connect with Jesus. All of our giving is in response to him and part of our worship.
