How often do our children get an invitation to a birthday party? Usually we check our calendar and write the important event on the corresponding day. We love allowing our children to attend parties because we know they will have a great time and it will build relationships.

Here at Access, we have an invitation for you to attend a party WITH your kids! So grab a look at our invite, sign up, and put it on your calendar. We look forward to seeing you!

Because He Lives


The pivotal truth about Easter is that Jesus rose from the dead, he was seen and he is alive! On Easter Sunday we closed our service with the song “Because He Lives.” This song encapsulates the significance of Easter and the chorus offers us three incredible phrases of encouragement as we live our daily lives.

“Because He Lives… I can face tomorrow”

Despite what you are facing in your life and what the future may hold we gain strength for tomorrow knowing that He lives.

“…all fear is gone”

We do not have to live our lives in fear because of the certainty of Christ’s victory and defeat of death and evil once and for all.

“Life is worth the living, just because He lives”

Not only can we face life, but it is worth the living because Christ is alive and that gives hope, security, and purpose for the future.

We hope you are encouraged today by these powerful truths!… Read the rest

The Hohmanns: A search for connection

hohmannpicBilly and Trish have a story that is common to so many couples. When you begin a life together, you not only combine finances and habitats; faith becomes an important topic as well. When both parties are raised with different ideas about church, worship, music, and serving, it can leave them with more questions than answers. Even when the differences are subtle, finding a church “home” can be a challenge. Billy and Trish each had clear ideas of what they didn’t want, but struggled to find common ground on what they did want. Finally Trish encouraged Billy to attend a church led by a pastor that she knew from her youth. Even though it was a significant drive from their home, Trish enjoyed the messages, and Billy got involved in serving. But over time, the majority of the family lost their passion for attending. Often Billy would find himself sitting in church alone. While he didn’t have all the answers, he knew one thing very clearly: THIS was not the way he hoped church and family would collide.… Read the rest

“Follow” Series with Andy Stanley

The Christian life may look or feel like a game of “Jesus Says”: Jesus says pray. Jesus says give. Jesus says go to church. But Jesus’ invitation to his first-century audience was to relationship. And it began with a simple request — follow me! In this 8-part series, Andy Stanley takes us on a journey through the Gospels as he traces Jesus’ teachings on what it means to follow.

We’re kicking off “Follow” April 12. Check out the video below for a preview!

Easter With Us

Easter_CurrentSeriesBannerHolidays seem to have a way of bringing people together. We all have a deep desire to experience life with other people. We invite you, your friends, and your family to share Easter with us at Access Church.

We’re kicking off our Easter services with a little Swedish House Mafia and maybe even some U2. There will be great music along with some stories of life change.

Then our lead pastor, Rich Barrett, will speak live, presenting “Brought to You By.” Rich will show us Christians don’t believe that Jesus rose from the dead because the Bible says so. They believe it because people who knew Jesus said they saw him alive after his crucifixion—men like Matthew, John, Peter, and James. These men gave their lives and their livelihoods for what they said they saw! We’ll look at what this means for our lives today.

Besides all this, we’ve got amazing environments for the whole family! Visit to see what’s available for your crew!… Read the rest
